Sensus Design Studio is a luxury design, interior design, and construction firm that specializes in luxurious turn-key passion-projects throughout the GTA. Founded by brothers John-Luke and Jesse Sahlani, who got their start early in life working on foundations and landscaping, the company has moved from small-scale renovations to 2,500-10,000sq/ft plus luxury custom homes. Now, Sensus Design Studio has 25 in-house staff members and a network of over 400 tradesmen and suppliers, but despite the company’s relative size, every project is personally overseen by the brothers themselves.

Jesse Sahlani heads all things design, and every timeless design he is known for starts with a sketch. Of course, he doesnt stop there. Sun studies and topographical considerations, as well as the proportions of each space that are crucial to the layouts and flow of the home are reviewed in depth to ensure that timelessness exists in every detail. The importance behind this practice is echoed throughout Jesse’s portfolio, as every design project he is involved in is designed to be just that; timeless. Jesse puts great importance towards each structure’s ability to harness the suns light at the time of highest use for each room, as well as the proportions of the structure itself.

From there the designs are brought to life through the use of photorealistic 3D renderings, full-scale floor plans, and interior design material boards, ensuring that every detail of the project is custom-tailored to each client and explained in a collaborative and visualizable way. While all of this sounds conceptual, Jesse and his team have also worked with almost every municipal zoning review, conservation authority, and building permit office in Southern Ontario to see through the permitting and approval processes required to start construction.

Project Planning

When in control of the means to production, our team is able to understand and account for details that impact all facets of the project from an early phase. These details are then able to be smoothly translated to a finished product on site.

Process & Communication

Our clients receive the benefit of working with one team throughout the design development, construction planning, and construction phases. This centralized approach reduces errors leading to re-work, and supports swift decision making when changes are needed.

Budget & Quality

Our structure allows us to price check our designs at multiple phases through the design development process. The result is an increased standard of financial literacy for our clients that helps them make the best decisions for their family’s home.

After Construction Care

Our quality control standards are stringent, and our warranty reflects this. Every project we touch is covered with a 2 year warranty on mechanical and finishing related items, while a 7 year warranty is placed on structural components.
