Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space


161 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,

What an amazing experience at this beautiful space! Matt and Gwen went above and beyond to make sure my partner and I have a great birthday celebration. They respected and understood our privacy and set up a beautiful lunch table for us with perfect music in the background (all their idea). They were extremely welcoming and absolutely lovely to meet in person. We could not be happier for choosing this beautiful space; aside from the aesthetics, it feels like a place made and kept with love and care. I would recommend it to anyone looking to have an event. Thank you so much for having us!

Wonderful space. I only gave 'accuracy of photos' a 4 star because the place is actually BETTER than the photos show. Unique collection of items gives the place character and look to be the result of much time searching for cool mementos. We did lose some time because everyone wanted to pet the super chill cat though ha ha Will definitely book here again.

Matt's Response:

Cheers Ed! So glad you liked the space and enjoyed Neko's fluffiness. She's a gem!

Matt and Gwen were amazing hosts. Their space is gorgeous and so very welcoming. I hosted an off-site business meeting for 12 people, and everyone raved about their space, and loved their resident cat! I'm recommend any of Matt and Gwen's spaces they are so beautiful.
