Midcentury Loft: Photo And Event Space


134 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 has been amazing with his Communication! There was a little dilemma with finding the keys/ getting in the place, but Matt quickly got the landlord to help us in and we didn’t even wait that long! It was such an easy process booking, the space was also SO beautiful! You can tell that it has been taken great care of and that everything inside has been well thought out. I definitely recommend this place for photo shoots, or even small intimate meetings to chill back with friends, maybe even create music! :)

We hosted a Co-Ed bridal shower at the Studio Loft Brick and Beam Dream. It was a wonderful venue with the open space that we desired in a large sun-filled loft. Matt was very responsive and helpful.

I believe that I speak for everyone who has experienced this loft. Matt and his wife were gracious hosts. Matt was there to help us carry items into the elevator and into the space. The pictures although stunning still do not do the space justice. This space is truly a dream and made our daughter's Sweet 16 Party a dream come true. Truly exceeded all of our expectations! We hope to be back and host another event in the future.

Matt's Response:

What a wonderful review and thanks so much for your kind words and we really enjoyed having you all!
