We designed our first condominium building in 1978 completing the sales centre, common areas and the model suites. Since then we have been completing projects internationally. One of our latest, full building, project is in Shenyang China along with an Award winning,10,000 sf Roof Top Garden & a 2800 sf Penthouse both here in Toronto Condominiums. With our experience & expertise we are now being sought after to update older Condominium & Apartment Common Spaces.
Experience in Condominium Design & space planning is essential to creating a leading edge Contemporary or Transitional space in any size or prestige level of Condominium. There is an existing misnomer that Condo units need to be painted white, have a lot of mirrors & smaller scaled furnishings – NOT TRUE!
Focus on the view, your paying a lot of money for it. Bring that view inside perhaps as part of theme. The select your interior focal point & build your design from there. Do keep in mind that in Toronto especially, we have a season called winter. If you use white or other cool colours as you looking out, no matter what you have the thermostat set at, your brain will read “COLD”and not feel comfortable. So, one can choose appropriate subtle light colours but make sure they have an underlying warm palette to them. Also use appropriate textured fabrics for both seasons. Have seasonal toss cushions colours.
Unlike the scale we dealt with in 1978 Condo units are getting smaller especially in Toronto presenting space planning furniture size challenges. After 11 projects in China the last project was the smallest one bedroom unit we have ever designed (below). The buildings vary in prestige & location from “The Mink Mile” to all along the Lake Ontario and North as far as you can go and everything in between. So, furniture quantity & scale it critical to fit the comfort & function without crowding the rooms.
Every Condominium design whether it’s inside or out has budget restraints; that has never impacted our ability to produce a satisfied client and take them beyond their expectations. We focus our Condominium Designs on the aesthetics of course comfort with results that produce comfort and a feeling of security. Your sanctuary in the sky.
