Gut Renovation of a LOFT space in Toronto
The building that was once a Peanut Factory in the historic District of Cabbagetown in Toronto was converted into eight airy townhouses in 1988. Each LOFT inherited unique to this area high ceilings and an open loft layout. On a sunny day, sunlight is streaming through the roof deck glass enclosure and full height windows. in 2016, this beautiful space was given another complete makeover during a gut renovation. The existing kitchen was relocated to the south end of the floor and the TV den and living areas were combined into one space. This resulted in improved circulation and much bigger footprint for the dining area and kitchen. The 3rd floor space was further extended over the stair which added storage space and an office area on the landing below. Materials and furnishings for each room were carefully selected in collaboration with the client who has a very keen eye for design and details. Flooring and stone were sourced from : Stone Tile Toronto, and kitchen was designed by Leicht Toronto. The ceiling layout was divided into 3 areas, which was a reflection of various activities planned for each zone. The high end feel os the space is a combination of modern and rustic chic.
We hired Agnieszka @ACA DESIGN STUDIO to help us create an airy and open space on the 3rd floor. With her lead, we decided to move the kitchen to the new location, which created additional office space on the 2nd level and added storage in the kitchen. She also took lead on the lighting design, which created a vibrant and elegant and bright space. She made a lot of effort to make sure all drawings were done to our specifications and that all the details were included. She was a delight to work with and I highly recommend her as an Interior Designer.
