About Us

Alfred Rubinoff always dreamed of building and helping others build homes. When he graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute’s (now Ryerson University) Architectural Technology program in 1953, he moved to North Bay with a fellow graduate to fulfill his dream. When tragic events led to his business partner’s death, Alfred moved back to the Greater Toronto Area to pursue design work. Over the next few years he worked with multiple firms, including W.J. Yager, and did some freelancing work as well.

Over time Alfred decided to pursue starting his own business, seeking to provide home buyers and renovators with exceptional design and drafting services. His vision led to the founding and incorporation of Alfred Rubinoff Limited in 1971, an architectural design office specializing in permit drawings for the construction of homes in subdivisions and infill developments.

Alfred’s son, Glenn, grew up learning from his father and perfecting his craft. Glenn succeeded his father and took over the family business in 1997. Glenn re-positioned the firm by modernizing the name to Rubinoff Design Group in 2000, and expanding the company’s scope of services offered by utilizing the latest technologies available in the industry.

Today, Rubinoff Design Group works with engineers, landscape architects, mechanical designers, interior designers and other professional consultants to provide exceptional service and expertise in the design of infill custom homes and renovations. We have been providing exceptional service and expertise to the GTA for over 45 years.


“Rubinoff Design Group was great to work with when we added a single story addition to our quirky log house. Paulina and Glenn were a pleasure to work with and understood our vision. We have received lots of compliments from our friends and love the new functional attractive space. RDG helped us navigate the permits process with conservation, ravine and city. We’d highly recommend them.”

-Katie Devlin, 84 Cedar Brae Blvd, Scarborough

“Glenn is experienced. Rubinoff Design Group has completed many projects in central Toronto with classic architectural look. Well known and respected by the local Committee of Adjustments staff. Glenn’s advice is worth the money, they provide the best price to quality ratio in the city.”

-Sergei Bogdanets, 58 Eagle Road, Etobicoke

“We are starting our fourth residential project with Glenn, in just two years. To work with him is easy, comfortable and friendly. He has a great team to work with. We are looking forward for more projects together.”

-Serdar Inan, White Star Trading & Investments

“We were incredibly pleased with the entire Rubinoff team from start to finish. Not only drawing upon an impressive track record of beautiful designs, they were always immediately responsive, deliberately thoughtful, and professional throughout. We would not hesitate to work with them again and have no doubts that they will make all of their future clients just as happy as we were. Thank you Team Rubinoff”
