=======================================

Thanks for your interest in the eclectic and original; often imitated, never duplicated, Midcentury Loft Studio. This is one of three incredible spaces hosted here on thisopenspace.

Midcentury Loft is a unique 900 sq ft space; lovingly curated as a chic, luxurious and stylish mixed-use Lifestyle Studio filled with over 170 plants, gorgeous lighting and beautiful midcentury accent furniture.
North facing windows bring in lovely indirect natural daylight with diffuse curtains; if it's bright out, it's bright in here. Be prepared with lighting and strobes, etc. for dreary days.

We are proud to have hosted: photo / video shoots, fashion / editorial / boudoir, bridal & baby showers, weddings!, engagements, elopements, private birthdays, secret supper clubs, fashion shoots, lifestyle video, product shoots, art galleries, showings, chef catered dinners, music videos, retail pop up, speaker series, corporate off-site meetings, cannabis culture nights, yoga... the list never ends!

This space our home outside of rentals; we love sharing our spaces and seeing what people create here. Our lovely and friendly cat Hammy lives here with us, he loves our guests, and we all can't wait to meet 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.

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.
