Toronto Presentation Centre
Project Type: Presentation Centre| Location: Toronto, ON | Photography: Steve Tsai
The Toronto presentation centre, combining two existing retail spaces was designed for impact as powerful as the Concord legacy along Toronto’s waterfront. Opulent and grand, it opens to a reception area featuring a back-lit, onyx reception desk and a custom chandelier made of tear drop-shaped, individually suspended crystals that create the illusion of rising and falling in waves. Visitors enter the next space – the display area- through an illuminated and enticing entry portal. Once through, a rich, moody colour palette, fine wood and brushed brass finishes and sumptuous velvet furniture evoke an upscale, urban Toronto feel and contrast with the abundant natural light. Conversation and flow is encouraged by strategic furniture placement – either coaxing people through different display elements or offering semi-private seating areas for more involved discussions.
