Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space


148 Reviews

About

An incredibly unique, beautiful and wide open 1,200 sq.ft mixed-use 'hard loft' located in a 109 year old converted warehouse in downtown Toronto with a capacity of 45 people in many configurations.

This thoughtfully outfitted 'Midcentury Modern' space has been lovingly curated as a chic and stylish urban oasis in a desert of stone and glass towers and nondescript 'condo party rooms'. There's a very lived-in feel, as this space is our home outside of rentals and hosted events.

We've had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of photo / video shoots, bridal/ baby showers, weddings, private birthdays, plant nights, secret supper clubs, fashion shoots, lifestyle, product shoots, art gallery/showings, chef catered dinners, music videos, retail launches, speaker series, the list goes on.

*Note on pricing: Listed rates are 'starting at' and include 5 guests or fewer. When you contact, I will quote based on: number of people, the date, hours required, and overall impact; rates are negotiable.

**Film / Video / TV production? This space is perfect for it, sound safe throughout the days, evenings & weekends

Amenities:
- 11 ft ceilings, exposed brick and beam, true hard loft experience
- Space for 45 people / guests with some seating and standing configurations
- Unique and hip lighting, crystal lights and Edison bulbs throughout
- 24 Folding chairs, x2 6 foot folding tables
- Comfy seating, vintage pieces and benches, period lamps, rugs
- 120 beautifully maintained and loved plants
- Full kitchen, moveable island with some accessories for food events, serving plates, etc.
- 110" HD projector with 5.1 Surround sound, Chromecast for laptop input, Youtube, Spotify, laptop direct display
-Super fast Wi-Fi to keep you connected
- Bedroom for hair/makeup/changing room or filmed scenes (only if booked in advance)
- Large safe Green P Parking lot 2 mins away
- 4th floor walk up, **no service elevator usage without prior agreement**

*There is a cat in the space, her name is Neko, she's super friendly, and will spend most of her time sleeping under the coffee table. Please bring antihistamines for allergies.
If you like the style but can't have the cat,

The space was perfect for the bridal shower I was throwing and we couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out. Matt was very responsive, super helpful leading up to our event and day-of. It was all so pleasant and easy to work with Matt, the whole process was seamless. I will definitely use the space again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique place with lots of character to host an event at.

Hosted an evening bridal shower for 15 at the loft and Matt was a fantastic host in a stunning space. Matt was responsive in the lead-up, very generous in giving us a hand for setup & take down, particularly as we were running behind. The Loft was in a good location downtown, well-equipped, spacious and furnished with amazing midcentury pieces. We highly recommend!

Matt is amazing to work with! He’s super reliable, easy to connect with and so kind! This is the second time I booked the Midcentury Loft with Matt and it’s even better than the first time and the first time was amazing! Beautiful space, lots of greenery, super clean and photographs so well. I will definitely be booking Matt’s loft again for the 3rd time! Cheers Matt!

Matt's Response:

Appreciate the kind words Alexa! Really wonderful to have had you and we're looking forward to a three-peat! Can't wait to see how everything turned out online. Cheers and message back anytime.

Matt and his wife were very friendly and welcoming, I felt at home right away! I was able to keep very open lines of communication with Matt leading up to my photoshoot and he was very thorough with the walkthrough on the day, so there was absolutely no guesswork, and everybody knew exactly what to expect. The space itself is stunning, the flooring has recently been redone with very clean hardwood. The photos are very accurate, what you see here is what you can expect. Genius design of this place, it's amazing how much you can do with just one room - the plants by the window give you lots of life and colour, the fairy lights on the ceiling are great for dreamy bokeh in portraits, and if you want to clean up the background and focus on your subject, the plain white wall opposite the plants gives you that as well. VERY happy with everything about this space. The owners are passionate and creative and it obviously shows.

Matt's Response:

Absolutely thrilled to get such a wonderful and detailed review! We can't appreciate it enough, truly; you've captured so much of what makes this space unique but also what makes it a joy to have other creatives share and make content of all kinds. Sounds like you had a great time and we're happy to host you again anytime! Cheers
