Alex Santiago

Kitchen Design Specialist

Days off: Wednesday & Sunday

Minimalism is key in Alexander’s approach to well-designed kitchens—he strives for spaces that afford utmost functionality without excess. “I appreciate simplicity, organization and efficiency,” he says. “The kitchen is often a home’s most-used space, and it should reflect a clients’ aesthetic while also serving them well.”

A native of Havana, Cuba, Alexander is fluent in both English and Spanish. He received an industrial design degree from Instituto Superior de Diseño Industrial (ISDi), a bachelor’s degree from Havana Architectural School, and completed a four-year computer-aided design (CAD) course at Miami Dade College. He has since spent an extensive amount of time in the design fields of furniture design, interior design, scenic design, project management and kitchen and cabinetry design.

At Cantoni, he employs his experience and exercises his innumerable talents by drafting and blueprinting innovative kitchens. “Each space requires an entirely fresh and unique approach, and I love putting the puzzle pieces together,” he says. Alexander is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and, in his free time, builds realistic models.
