B+H introduces new director of interior design
George Foussias joins B+H’s Interior Design practice as its new Director of Interior Design and Senior Associate.
Foussias brings over 20 years of experience across the commercial, mixed-use, hospitality, residential, and retail sectors, and he has led award-winning projects for brands including W Hotels, Virgin hotels, Four Seasons, Wolfgang Puck, Great Gulf, Alterra, Tridel, Samsung and Audi.
According to B+H, Foussias is passionate about building a design-oriented studio culture: “In addition to his design, strategy, and project management + delivery skills, the designer excels at growing teams and cultivating talent through mentorship and professional development.”
In his role, Foussias will work collaboratively across departments and studios to fuel the growth of B+H’s Interior Design practice across Canada.
“I am thrilled to join the B+H family, a firm with a legacy of delivering diverse projects centered around inspiring the human experience,” says Foussias. “As the creative world continues to evolve, I look forward to working with a truly multidisciplinary team that asks fearless questions to derive unique ideas and deliver the most resilient designs for our clients.”
Foussias joins the practice at an exciting time for B+H’s expanding interior design portfolio. Most recently, the firm led on the design for the LCBO Headquarters at 100 Queens Quay East and the SickKids Patient Support Centre in Toronto.
“We could not be more excited to welcome George to the team,” says Bill Nankivell, CEO of B+H Architects. “His depth of experience and unparalleled insight will be a huge asset to the firm as we continue to grow our Interior Design practice throughout 2022 and beyond.”
