An award-winning designer with over twenty years of experience, Dominic De Freitas is passionate about creating interiors that are memorable and inspire a purposeful living experience. Since joining the team at distinguished design firm Figure3 more than five years ago, Dominic has been instrumental in growing the company’s residential sector and elevating their design.

His drive and tenacity are what earned him the title as Figure3’s newest principal earlier this year, and what made him Empire’s top choice for designing the four new model homes at our Legacy community in Thorold, Ontario. Each home is imbued with its own distinct personality and reflects the qualities of Niagara living, from its connection to the rural landscape to its culture of food and winemaking. Explore the four distinct looks he conceptualized for the homes.
