Pioneer Village Station in Toronto, Canada by aLL DESIGN

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Article source: aLL DESIGN

Pioneer Village station straddles the border of York Region, beneath the intersection of Steeles Avenue West and Northwest Gate, anchoring a corner of York University Campus. The station will serve as an integrated regional transport hub serving up to 20,000 subway passenger trips daily, providing 1,881 commuter parking spaces and two separate regional bus terminals. The location is otherwise underdeveloped and it is intended that the station entrances and bus terminals will create a public focal point that will serve the future development of the surrounding area, beginning with Steeles Avenue West.

Broadview Loft in Toronto, Canada by Studio AC

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Article source: Studio AC 

Located in a downtown loft in Toronto, Canada we were asked to design a studio loft space for a young professional that wanted something equally fun, functional and unique. We produced a scheme that revolves around an element we call the ‘bed box’ which features a generous arch entryway and elevation change – a move that produces a signifier for the sleeping quarters and a moment of warmth in opposition to the white and concrete finishes of the rest of the loft. This warmth is achieved through a floor and wall wrapper of finish plywood that holds your feet and eye as you walk in. Initial studies saw this element take on a variety of forms, orientations and materials but the simple arch configuration was a reaction to the clients background, travels and personality. This fed nicely into the form of the curtain track which is the same arch shape in plan as the other is in elevation. This subtle cuing ties the two elements together, one hard and stationary, the other light and dynamic.

Slack, the world’s fastest growing tech company in history, is a San Francisco based startup offering a revolutionary team communication app for business. After just a handful of years, the company had already opened offices around the globe including Vancouver, New York, Melbourne, London, and Dublin. Each office occupies a former industrial building with interiors that honour the property’s legacy, renew its productivity, and reflect Slack’s values of empathy, solidarity, and craftsmanship.

Industrial felt lines the wall and ceiling of the reception area in a striated pattern by Felt Studio.

ELASTICOSPA wins an Award at Archmarathon in Miami with the Maison Glacé project

There must be a difference in designing a home in Toronto as opposed to Turin: two very culturally different cities, different also in size and morphology.

Stefano Pujatti, founder of studio ELASTICOSPA must have asked himself this question often, when he decided to open the second headquarters of his studio in the Canadian metropolis.
