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, feature films**, 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 or 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, service elevator (side loading of the building) [booked in advance **may be subject to $100 fee**

It's pur passion to get as many people and events as possible booked in the space.

*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 super responsive in pre-planning, very helpful upon arrival with hands on support loading in, and very responsive throughout the day with any questions that came up. We had a mishap with some pesky confetti, and Matt was very reasonable and professional in helping us sort through the issue. The space was beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot. I could not recommend this space enough!

The space was elegant and beautiful just as the pictures show. A wonderful energy has been cultivated here and you can certainly tell the attention to detail. Matt was a gracious host, accommodating, understanding and caring for us sincerely. He gave us the freedom to create and we did just that! Beyond grateful and would certainly book again!

Matt's Response:

Ross, I greatly appreciate this lovely review you've given to me and recognize your kindness. I'm so glad you had a such a wonderful time with your shoot and I wish you all the best in your endeavours; happy to have you back anytime.

Matt& his partner did everything they could to make sure we were set up for success on arrival! We used this beautiful space for our small wedding in April. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve had ask me where we got married because the loft is straight out of a magazine. We loved every second of our experience with him, from touring the space prior to booking, all the way to the big day!

Matt's Response:

Becky, thank you so much for your incredibly kind words! We were so happy to have had you and your family, well-wishers, all. This is truly what makes hosting such a joy for us! Congratulations on your journey; so glad to be a part of your memories. Can't wait to see the pictures! All the best in life and love.

We had a small-ish (around 30 people) wedding at the loft and the space was so perfect for the evening. The open space on one half of the loft is great for the ceremony, mingling, dancing, while the other half gives a more cozy option where to recharge energies. The place is beautifully designed, with the lighting and all the presence of greenery. Matt was very easy to communicate with and very flexible when accommodating our requests. Definitely a worthwhile place to celebrate a special event!

Matt's Response:

Wonderful to have hosted you all, was a magical event, I'm sure! We love having such incredible events here with such amazing people. So glad we can be a part of everyone's memories!

This space was perfect for our needs and lived up and beyond my expectations! I booked this space for my graduation party and all my guests loved how chic and unique the it was. The space is also versatile with all the neat accents and large window; they frequently have photography sessions, music performances, etc. The projector with the chromecast hooked up is an ingenious idea. Also was the gong for letting people know that the party's ending soon. Matt was always an arms length away to help out and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend this venue. Like in Airbnb, never forget to be respectful of the space.

The place was amazing and the cat was really adorable. So sad we had to leave and I couldn't pet the cat anymore. But nonetheless it was a wonderful place that we held our event at. It felt like home and my mentor enjoyed looking around the space and was so enticed by it. As I didnt know what the place looked at the outside, some of my guest thought the area was shady. It was a funny experience

Matt's Response:

Wonderful to hear you had a great time Coeli; Neko loves pretty much everyone. So glad it felt like home; we pride ourselves on a super positive space for all our guests.

Matt was wonderful, and his space was just perfect. I needed a dreamy space for some independent project filming at the last minute, and Matt's loft was just the sanctuary I needed. Many props, lots of natural light and a functional ceiling swing too! Neko the cat was adorable and napped most of the time we were there. I'd highly recommend Matt's space to anyone looking to add some beauty to their event/ meeting/ photo/ video production!
