Akin 596 provides rentable art studios and a space for artists to call home in Toronto’s Downtown Core. This adaptive reuse project focused heavily on providing a residential aspect to an existing company and creating a solution to Toronto’s “missing middle” issue. Akin 596 is a five-storey building with approximately 20 working studio spaces, 12 rentable rooms and a storefront to sell and display the work of the in-house artists. The design goals of this project were to match Akins overall style and focus on using reused, locally sourced materials.
