This condo project is at the prestigious intersection of Bloor and Yonge streets in Toronto. Informed by the flowing, sculpted facade of the future condo tower, the sales center design is a rich array of organic forms. Eventscape engineered, fabricated and installed over fifteen custom elements that celebrate this prime urban landscape.
An impressive 14 ft. long custom organic sofa covered with a magnificent embossed leather greets the visitors to the center. White faux leather covers the curved wood-framed center hub with integrated seating niche. Elegant curved metal benches nestled in the interior are finished with embossed leather. Above the benches, glittering glass tiles cover the wall. Glass tiles also finish the exterior of the custom sample table which has concealed LED lights under the Starphire glass top. White faux leather covers the reception wall, desk and ceiling feature. Rolled aluminum tubes, laser cut light cove and connecting plates complete the 20 ft. long curved ceiling feature.
Black back-painted glass panels with velour finish and bevelled edges make up the 3 wall surfaces. Additional custom I-Pad holders, (west wall) 20 LCD screens (east wall) and frosted backlit lettering with LED lighting and hidden door (south wall) were all integrated by Eventscape. Decorative Tee columns are built of solid aluminum with a spun aluminum cone top. Custom bronze plating and hand rubbed black oxide give the structures a rich patina finish.
