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.
Midcentury Loft has also been host to over 200++ video, TV and film shoots with audio recording of dialogue and 'talking head'.
Midcentury Loft is generally quite a sound safe space for on-screen productions with audio recording.

Matt was a great host! And the space was absolutely perfect! I can not wait to visit again!
This place was amazing. Exactly how it’s shown in pictures, very warm and cozy. The host was incredibly nice and easy to communicate with, went above and beyond making sure everything was perfect for my event.
Absolutely stunning space! It was everything I imagined. Matt was an amazing host!
The place looks the same as on pictures, and even better. Very clean, very pretty flowers and interior pieces. Every corner and wall is very photogenic. We have taken plenty of very nice pictures! All my guests kept saying that it’s like our of the world and nobody knew that there are places like yours in Toronto! The host is super super nice and helpful! Will definitely be recommending it to our friends and come back again!
This was my second time booking with Matt and my expectations were exceeded yet again. This space is absolutely gorgeous and every single person that arrived was blown away. The hosts are also super nice and accommodating! 10/10 would recommend.
Fantastic space and very friendly. Looking forward to coming back!
Such a nice space - we held an intimate photoshoot and all the decor they had were perfect props and inspiration. Matt was great with coordination, some hiccups along the way (not their fault) but it all worked out seamlessly in the end,
This is an absolutely lovely environment and with Matt’s help I was able to comfortably host a dinner party of 25 seamlessly. The beautiful light, plants and accoutrements made everything just that much more special.
We hosted a rustic theme bridal shower over the weekend at the Midcentury Loft Studio and Event Space and had such a great time! It was definitely a success and everyone loved the space. We knew it would be perfect for our theme when we first came for a viewing. Matt, his wife and cat (Neko) live there and together, they've created a beautiful living/event space. It's filled with gorgeous plants of all kinds and decor like I've never seen before. It's super unique and makes you feel warm and fuzzy when you're inside. It has a very "homey" and "good vibes" feel to it. The ambiance is great. You can't help but notice all the decor pieces and get inspired. It was the perfect place to host our bridal shower. I definitely recommend it to all! That being said, the response times could have been quicker overall and there were a few problems with communication. We had indicated in advance that we would need elevator access the day of, but we found out last minute that it was out of service. It was unfortunate because our vendors required it to bring their material upstairs and thus charged us an extra fee for the inconvenience, but Matt really worked hard to fix the problem and had the elevator running by the time the event ended. Aside from this, everything else was good.
Matt was quick to respond to any questions I had and even happily accommodated a last-minute booking extension! The loft was beautiful and plant-filled.
So great to hear everything went well, Eadie! Cheers and can't wait to have you back :)
