Project: Podium Head Office, Toronto
Client: Podium Developments
Architect of Record: Standard Practice
Status: Completed 2017
Involvement: All phases
Driven by a 3 month schedule to design and construct, we worked closely with the client to develop thoughtful and and simple solution that would meet both schedule and budget.
Located in an industrial building in downtown Toronto, the existing 4500 sf space is characterized by the exposed steel structure, heavy wood lumber ceilings, exposed masonry walls and polished concrete floors. As such, we worked with a reduced palette of painted white walls, clear frameless glazing and wood veneers.
Conceived with 2 phases, the first phase of the renovation incorporates an in-house sales centre. In phase 2, the sales centre is relocated off-site – allowing for the completion of the office layout and providing a clear circulation route and maximum level of transparency communication throughout the floor space.
