Bright And Art Filled Classic Hard Loft
This hard loft was one of the first of its kind in Toronto. A repurposed furniture factory, this 2,500 sq.ft mixed-use loft boasts 24 ft ceilings with lots of natural light in the heart of Downtown Toronto. It has beautiful original wooden floors and slate counter tops surrounding the perimeter of the living area. This space can host upwards of 80 people standing in comfort and has room to add seating in addition to the 10 seats available.
The living room and dining area are raised above the kitchen in one open space, connected and allowing for increased foot traffic and fluidity between Kitchen and Living space. Large pieces of artwork adorn the wall space and can be switched out to feature your pieces upon request and for additional cost. Great wall space and a huge bay window display gives great exposure and natural light. There is access to a deck area with lounge seating for up to 10. A powder room is also easily located on the top floor.
The building originally held 11 live-in studios by major Canadian artists, filmmakers and designers, creative thought was at the core of these maker spaces. We have held onto the original design of the place and therefore it has that 90s contemporary hard loft feel that so few spaces can truly recreate. There is also a book-lined office available on the same floor which provides a quiet space and area to store supplies for your event outside of the main areas. A staff member can remain discretely onsite (main floor living area) to assist you with your needs.
There's a very lived-in feel, as this space has been our home for 25 years, outside of rentals and hosted events. We've had the pleasure of hosting many different types of events over the years: Bridal/ Baby Showers, Weddings, Birthdays, Product Shoots, Music Recitals, Speaker Series, Wine & Cheese tastings Private Dinners, Receptions, Gallery Exhibition, Networking, Meetings, Workshops and corporate day retreats – you name it, we’ve hosted.
