Katie Kuzan, senior associate at Kohn Partnership Architects, says the structure’s loft-inspired design – which she calls “industrial chic” – recalls heritage artist spaces. “The developers came to the table inspired by artist lofts from the ’60s and ’70s in Toronto,” she says. “The aesthetic is that of exposed concrete and duct work, barn doors, which we brought in from Newfoundland, and a lot of masonry elements that you might expect to see,” says Kuzan. “Rather than converting an actual warehouse into a loft, we simply recreated it,” she says.
