Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space


138 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 designed 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 reach out, I will quote based on: number of people, the date, hours required, and overall impact.

**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
- Comfy seating, vintage pieces and benches, period lamps, rugs
- 87 beautifully maintained and loved plants
- 24 Folding chairs, x2 6 foot folding tables
- Full kitchen, moveable island with some accessories for food events, serving plates, etc.
- 80" HD projector with 5.1 Surround sound, Chromecast for laptop input, Youtube, Spotify, laptop direct display
- Includes 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 written agreement**

*There is a cat in the space, her name is Neko, she's super friendly, and will spend most of her time sleeping in the bedroom. Please bring antihistamines for allergies.

Matt was an amazing host! His place was even better than the pictures! Absolutely loved shooting here and he had numerous props and furniture items we could shoot with that created the most wonderful and fun shoot! Very happy I booked here! Thanks Matt.

I hosted my birthday celebration yesterday and was completely blown away by the top-notch hospitality from Matt and his wife Gwen, the beauty of the venue, and how it was absolutely perfect for my event. All of my guests were awe-struck at the greenery, the lights, and the overall warm vibe. Matt was easy to communicate with before my event and made sure he was available throughout my event if I needed anything (his cat Neko was also so lovely!) After my event, they were so sweet to check in on me and assist with helping me bring items back down to the main foyer. I would highly recommend this space for events, shoots, or just about anything! Thank you so much for making my birthday celebration a memorable experience:)

My husband and I were married in this space, and it was exactly what we wanted! Matt was a wonderful host and the space was beautiful. They had already set up the chairs when we arrived so we really had nothing to do but enjoy our simple ceremony in a lovely place. We loved all the plants, furnishing, and unique decor. The cat slept under the coffee table the whole time and was very chill. I would definitely use this space again should occasion arise.

Matt's Response:

What a wonderful and thoughtful review, Alayna! So happy we can be a part of your memories for years to come. All the best to you both and your families.

The Midcentury Loft was a beautiful space, it was perfect for our event. The decor was lovely, it was clean and tidy. There was lots of natural light and really quiet which was wonderful for meditations and yoga. Matt and Gwen were wonderful people to work with. Thank you!

This space was incredible! Exactly as the pictures show, and even better. Great energy, clean and Matt was extremely accommodating. He helped us set up and made sure we were well looked after for our event. I would recommend this location for anyone looking for a great all around experience!

Matt's Response:

Thanks so much for the kind and thoughtful review, Kira! Was a pleasure to have you and your guests for the event! Cheers and all the best,

Matt's space was amaaaazzzingggg!!! My model and I were completely in love with the space. Serious Loft goals for my future! Matt was welcoming and friendly. He put on music for us and even poured us a glass of water before he headed out. Neko (the cat) is such a sweetie. The space is big and the lighting is fantastic. We did a boudoiresque type shoot and the photos turned out beautiful. I highly recommend this space if you're looking for mood lighting and lots of foliage for your pictures. My model and I wanted to stay longer than our booked time. I am considering rebooking this spot. If you're driving, there is street parking around the corner.
