Sunlight Open Concept Studio
The Studio is an open concept creative space with ample natural light, soaring 13 foot ceilings, and modern floor-to-ceiling south and west-facing windows. With over 1200 square feet of space, you can create, shoot, and host with ease. The venue has a relaxed yet refined New York loft feel, with curated decor, furniture, and stylistic accents. Our polished environment affords unique design elements, including a lounge, custom archways, walls painted in chantilly lace white, and an art-deco inspired atmosphere. Our south and west-facing windows provide consistent, natural light throughout the day, creating the perfect ambiance for your next shoot or event.
Our large shooting area with 13-foot ceilings and clean white walls is the perfect backdrop for your next shoot. Hand-picked flooring reflects light cleanly and evenly. You can keep it simple or use the space as a canvas and get creative.
Outfitted with wainscotting, polished concrete floors, and modern furnishings, The Nook provides a refined backdrop to emulate an upscale living space.
Custom built archways use frosted glass backing to diffuse light, and include load-bearing sills for flexibility in posing. The sunlight shining through the hollow of the archways allows you to backlight your subject with ease. The first arch is 12 feet high and perfect for full-length poses.
The Lounge is a co-working space design to encourage community. The 15-foot custom booth-style couch, cruelty-free blue suede upholstery, and mid-century-modern cafe tables provide a calm and comfortable atmosphere to work and connect.
A rotating assortment of furniture and seating options make it easy to build your set and set the mood.
Large floor-to-ceiling south and west-facing windows allow natural light to stream in and make the room bright and airy throughout the day. These large, unobstructed windows provide ample clean light in all weather conditions. Soft white curtains can be drawn to diffuse the light, and large reflective panels can be rolled into place to manipulate the incoming light. Surfaces are neutral toned to ensure bounced light is clean in colour.
THE CHANGE ROOM
Our private wardrobe styling room is complete with multi-level hooks, a backlit full-length mirror, and a steamer to ensure your clients or models feel their best.
THE BEAUTY BAR
Hair and makeup are an art within themselves, and we’ve worked with top stylists in the city to create a setup that is ideal for artists. With bright lighting, a large mirror, four outlets, a large work surface, and adjustable stools, this station is the perfect home base for any stylist.
Public parking is located directly outside the front door, for a stress-free experience on arrival. The studio entrance is located on the first floor for easy access, with only five steps up to the door. We want you to spend your time in our space, not circling the block looking for parking, or hauling gear up multiple flights of stairs.
We’ve taken care of all the details. With a wireless sound system, high-end furnishings, trendy interior design and luxury amenities, this space is sure to impress, so you can focus on your art.
