Interior Design – Temporary or Portable

GOLD



Project: Lippincott Living

Designer: Cecconi Simone



Client: Blurredge Group

In smaller projects of this size, it is unheard of to build a model suite because the associated cost is amortized over so few units. In this case, however, the showroom contributed to its profitability. Of the 8 units available, over 50% sold in less than four months.

Representative of all eight units, the ground floor includes many thoughtful design elements to enhance living and storage. Built in cabinetry runs from the front to the back of the space, forming the dining banquet, the kitchen and the living room entertainment unit. In lieu of upper cabinets over the kitchen, high capacity full height pantries are located opposite the island. Integrated appliances, with European styling create a sleek, streamlined kitchen with an island.

Beyond the generous millwork items that are standard, a complete furniture and accessories package offers the ultimate in turnkey convenience.

Project: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity

Designer: Reich + Petch Design International

Client: Royal Ontario Museum

The gallery had to include as many specimens as possible from the world-class collections, be fabricated of sustainable materials and have bilingual, updateable content.

The gallery combines seven ecosystem experiences, 2500 specimens and models, two live displays, the Earth Rangers Studio, a broadcast-ready demonstration studio and updateable audiovisual support materials in two languages.

The central Biodiversity Spine outlines the scientific characteristics that define biodiversity. The specimen mounts resemble scientific apparatus and clean angular plinths support the larger specimens. Sail-like internal divisions made of PLYBOO subdivide these extremely large cases and conceal a series of structural columns that run the length of the gallery. They also carry the main signage and are strong enough to support large specimens.

Around the gallery perimeter, the Ecosystem Experience cases demonstrate the interconnectedness of organisms that comprise an ecosystem.

During the first week of operation an estimated 20,000 visitors visited the gallery.

Bronze

Project: ÏCE Condominiums at York Centre Sales Office

Designer: Munge Leung Design Associates

Client: Lanterra Developments and Cadillac Fairview

The Designer’s goal was to create an environment that was cozy and comfortable as well as chic and sophisticated to help promote the sales and marketing of the ÏCE residential towers.

Inspired by the ideologies of Scandinavian design, the Designers have created an original, pure, sculptural and timeless space that promotes sustainable and affordable living. Displays of
iconic furniture from celebrated Scandinavian designers illustrate how the appreciation of simple shapes, patterns and textures can beautify everyday life.

The design of the Sales Office is lightweight, with simple construction, and minimal material usage, to reflect the fundamental theme of Scandinavian design.

To better understand and to foster a deeper appreciation for Scandinavian design and history, the Client and the creative team including the Architect, Interior Designer and Marketing Consultants, all traveled to Copenhagen and Stockholm to experience firsthand the essence of Scandinavian culture and design.

Honorable Mention

Project: Installation

Designer: Studio Junction Inc.

Client: Studio Junction Inc.

This site-specific installation was created for Come Up To My Room 2009 - an alternative
design show housed in Toronto’s historic Gladstone Hotel. While being an exploration of light, this installation also experimented with various design and construction processes. Computer modeling and CNC cutting were used for the complex curves of the structural plywood elements of the bench and dome, in conjunction with traditional hands-on model making and woodworking techniques.

The designer’s took advantage of the existing 12’ ceiling height as a means of manipulating the viewer’s perception of space. The installation requires the viewer to inhabit it. The viewer needs to take the time to sit, to let their body fall into the bench and have their eyes adjust to the darkness.

In this quiet place of contemplation, they can then notice the voids and the cycle of light highlighted above as they breathe in the unexpected, subtle but overwhelming, scent of cedar.

Interior Design – Temporary or Portable

Honorable Mention

Project: Blue Note

Designer: Plant Architect Inc.

Client: Nightswimming


Blue Note is a collaboration between theatre artists, musicians, and architects to create a live installation.

The audience enters the gallery mid-rehearsal, and shares the space with a group of singers rehearsing challenging new pieces of music interspersed with scripted text, while moving individually or collectively around the space. The form and order of the performance change daily and are activated by the public, players and the architectural, emotional and narrative content of the piece.

A visual narrative of colour and text fragments, moveable benches, and malleable light and acoustic devices, add a physical dimension to the performance, and can be activated by the players or the audience/visitor. The lighting creates theatrical action, rather than highlighting scripted action.

Marked by white vinyl on the floor and gloss white wall paint, motion triggered lights create instantaneous spatial interruptions in the otherwise dark space, activated by audience and performers.
