Celebrating Excellence in Interior Design

The annual awards program of the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) recognizes the exceptional work of qualified interior designers, while also raising public awareness of the power and effect of interior design among the Ontario public. Interior design is more than aesthetics. The qualified registered interior designer finds creative solutions for interior environments that enhance the quality of life of their occupants. The award winning projects showcased in this magazine demonstrate how the expertise of ARIDO members enhances the spaces where we live, work and play. Projects can only qualify for judging where a Registered member of ARIDO was the lead interior designer on the project. Each entry is judged on its own merit by esteemed representatives from business, media and design. In their submissions, entrants are asked to relay existing design elements, budget and project objectives, strategies employed, overall creativity, examples of project results, and sustainability and collaborative elements. A panel of six judges selected 24 projects to receive awards in 6 categories. The winning projects include 4 Awards of Excellence and 20 Awards of Merit.

The Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) is the only self-regulatory organization for interior designers in Ontario. Since its inception in 1934, the Association has played a vital role in the interior design industry by protecting the rights of the interior design profession and regulating the interior design profession in Ontario in the best interests of the public. ARIDO obtained Private legislation, Bill Pr6, in 1999 which grants Registered Members who meet ARIDO standards exclusive use of the title Interior Designer in Ontario. By giving legal standing to the designation of Interior Designer, the government bestows on the title a measure of respect and recognizes the high standards of education, training and formal examination that professional interior designers meet. The act also safeguards consumers by ensuring that members are fully qualified and possess the most current qualifications. Any person in Ontario who is not a Registered member of the ARIDO is guilty of an offense if he or she uses the designation Interior Designer or ARIDO. The more than 1,100 Registered members of ARIDO have expertise in a wide range of sectors, including corporate, residential, retail, hospitality, health care and institutional. In total, ARIDO has more than 3,000 Registered, Intern, Educator and Student members.

MACKAGE FLAGSHIP

Marking their foray into flagship stores, Mackage commissioned the design of a global brand concept to reflect their sexy, modern edge. To appeal to the discerning group of trendsetters and fashion-forward consumers who demand quality craftsmanship, detailing, and tailored style in the staple pieces of their wardrobe, the new concept needed to encapsulate the luxury and modern sensibility of their collections. Armed with a blank brand canvas, the design drew inspiration from the urban sensibility of a modern ski chalet where the environment became a respite from the busyness of the traditional shopping experience. The retailer did not want to display product duplicates on the floor to encourage staff interaction for sizing requests. Keeping the floor product displays to a minimum created an opportunity to incorporate rich visual interest as a contextual backdrop for each product collection, transforming the store environment into an immersive platform for the brand. Every touchpoint became proprietary to the brand identity, rather than relying solely on visual merchandising to do the storytelling. The design had to appeal to both genders as the brand designs collections for both men and women. The resulting androgynous sensibility allowed the space to remain open in concept, while establishing distinctive points of memory around the visually textured environment. INTERIOR DESIGNER

Designing an interior for a client that will define a generation of thinking was a real challenge. Tasked with understanding the Google culture, the design team had to inspire the creative minds that would ultimately change the future. Google challenged the design team to be bold, fearless, and clever. The historic Breithaupt building, located in the Kitchener Waterloo region, was not habitable at the project’s onset. New floors, central vertical stairs, and elevator core were added to make connecting between buildings easy. The 1905 building was retrofit with full-scope interior design, furniture, and graphic design services. Unique floor plates tied together the concept of planned randomness to facilitate collaboration zones for flexible thinking. The design team also managed to meet and exceed Google’s acoustic performance metrics as well as LEED v4 requirements. The next generation Google brand is meant to integrate work, rest, food, and fun aspects of Google-life. The Phase 1 solution was to create a new campus environment in collaboration with local trade and artisan communities to serve as a landing pad for bright, new engineers. INTERIOR DESIGNER

As students’ first, official point of contact with their institution, and sometimes a place of great stress and anxiety, having a welcoming and efficient registration office is of particular importance. Ryerson University, based in Toronto, Ontario, engaged Gow Hastings Architects to help them re-interpret their Office of the Registrar and develop this model of a centralized “ServiceHub.” The mandate was to transform a 13,000-sq.-ft. former cafeteria in a 1970s Brutalist building into a ‘one-stop’ shop for student services. As Ryerson’s key administrative interface for students, the ServiceHub needed to set the tone for the University as an open, progressive, and welcoming place and reflect its identity as a dynamic institution at the forefront of post-secondary education in Canada. The updated space also needed to be scalable, functional, and spacious while still encouraging student traffic to efficiently move them through the services offered. The design team was challenged to bring student services to life in a unique and creative way that communicates Ryerson’s innovative outlook and to imaginatively transform how the students experience and engage with their university’s crucial resources. The primary challenge was to modernize the space within the constraints of the pre-existing conditions of the 1960s-era interior, which were dated, dark, heavy, and underutilized.

PA R K S I D E S T U D E N T R E S I D E N C E

The typology of a private student residence is relatively new to this marketplace and the brief called for a design approach to elevate the accommodation and amenities to a level not previously associated with student housing. The reconfigured space features a variety of residential options and offers the kinds of amenities rarely available in student accommodations. The 1970s hotel stood disconnected from its urban context with a compartmentalized and concealed interior layout that lacked natural light. By replacing the precast concrete panels on three sides of the second floor volume with glazing, the design creates visual interest by revealing an expansive open student lounge with a bold interior of wood finishes and red accents. A tactile and minimalist approach to finishes complements and contrasts the existing rough, exposed concrete structure with the softness of natural wood and textiles. The pattern of wool carpet tiles evokes the aesthetic of concrete in a softer rendition. Colour is used as a repeating element throughout accent walls, custom millwork, selected furnishings and sound attenuation treatment. To extend the versatility of active learning, individual study occurs in upholstered glass boxes next to moveable seating with portable power towers to accommodate flexible group sizes.

40 OAKLANDS CONDOMINIUM

Typologically the unit is a fringe condition with its main floor opening to a full on-grade backyard, BBQ and direct street access. It is not quite a condo and not quite a townhouse. This interesting condition and its mixed implications of smart practicality and minimalist comfort became the theme of the project. The key design components, from spatial positioning of built-ins and furniture, to lighting, to finishes, were used to define and address visual and physical boundaries between areas to create a coherent interior. Purpose as a contemporary value is central, and nothing is there without a reason. The challenge on the main floor was to ensure that, while maintaining a sense of overall flow and spatiality, the living room did not feel completely merged with the kitchen. This was especially important in achieving a home-like space since in a condominium, a clear separation is often impossible.

This client was very specific in that they wanted a unique and different approach taken from the onset. Their criterion was a contemporary Great Room that exhibited grandeur and the unexpected! They preferred a neutral gray and white palate with an emphasis on white marble and light coloured walls. Their preference in artwork was something large scale and impressive that was unique and customized. Their tastes stem from a contemporary Miami feeling that they both enjoy. This client was open to ideas and was great to work with because every designer embraces the opportunity to think outside the conventional footprint of the masses.

LAKE PAVILION

Situated completely on a 5,000-sq.-ft steel dock, the Lake Pavilion shares a shoreline with sheer granite cliffs and hemlock forests. The most notable feature of the dock level is the seamless connection between interior and exterior spaces, and the absence of interior walls. Despite the wide open space, the considered placement of furniture that radiates around a central bar results in a surprisingly social atmosphere. Unlike the main level, which is designed to accommodate large groups of friends and family, the upper level is an intimate suite, for the client’s personal use. The space had to function as a quiet sanctuary, even while the lower level was in full swing. To achieve this, the design team introduced upholstered paneling to all of the walls and doors of the bedroom. This was complemented in the ensuite bathroom, which was clad entirely in a monochromatic limestone. The Lake Pavilion accommodates dining, lounging, sleeping and contemplative uses, all enjoying the views and connections to the incredible setting that surrounds this most special building.

ANDREWS – SHERWAY GARDENS

Andrews requested a New York SoHo vibe for its Sherway Gardens location, which translated through industrial cues like an open ceiling and concrete-style floor. This was juxtaposed with a more traditional design voice of paneled walls, dropped ceilings, and herringbone wood floor. Through the store, vintage rugs and tufted leather benches complete the warm look creating inviting moments and ensuring the store is comfortable.

The layout is compartmentalized into zones so that the 5,500-sq.-ft. floor plan will allow the clients to have a more personalized and curated shopping experiences while enabling the retailer to merchandise smaller fashion “stories”. Semi-enclosed fitting room antechambers offer an intimate experience and allow the customers a place to come out and discuss their looks with a sales associate or a shopping companion without feeling exposed to the rest of the store. The eveningwear area is shrouded in antique mirror and nestled in the rear of the store providing an intimate “shop-in-shop” for clients to try on garments.

BANK OF MONTREAL – FIRST CANADIAN PLACE

Banks today are facing many of the same challenges as “traditional” retailers: fierce competition for a share of mind and wallet, and, as e-commerce expands, more customers turn to the conveniences of online shopping and payments. In 2008, BMO recognized the need to simplify customer experience. While the Making Money Make Sense® brand initiative resonated with their customers, the physical retail touchpoint needed to transform to reflect these same principles of simplicity and clarity. As a result, the First Canadian Place branch in Toronto is designed with customer experience in mind. The layout removes physical barriers to increase transparency and compatibility – a direct function of design research identifying a need for clarity in the banking experience.

BELMONTE RAW

Belmonte Raw was one of the original cold-pressed juiceries in Toronto. The design reflected this and set the bar that much higher. The juice bar needed to not only display and sell the vibrant juices and delicious raw food selections, but also provide an opportunity for customer consultation and education – a large component of Belmonte Raw’s offerings. The staff are highly educated and well trained on the benefits of juicing and cleansing to provide personalized programs for their clients. An area was required for consultation for cleansing programs, along with a space for providing taste samplings and education to the customer.

The design team wanted the space not only to function well for the client, but have the store be appealing to the demographic to maintain sales, as well as create space which the client felt was personalized. With the client having spent years in Asia learning about the healing properties of foods, the design team sought inspiration from her personal collection of travel mementos – on display at the store.

HOPSON GRACE

From the warm patina of the bronzed metal exterior to the custom light fixture running the full length of the store, the brand’s style sensibility is expressed through the nuances of design detail. Two harvest tables reimagined in marble acts as the feature showcase for beautiful table settings and an array of complimentary gift items. Soft goods like linens and table runners are artfully displayed on a sculptural arrangement of bronzed metal hang bars. Perimeter fixtures float off the wall to display product collections while allowing an unobstructed flow of natural light into the space through the store’s large windows. Loaded with hidden storage space, tuck away trays to arrange place settings, and other smart design elements ensure the space does not compromise on any functional operation. Designed as a reflection of the founders’ passion to elevate the entertaining experience, the new Hopson Grace boutique has turned the traditional homewares shopping experience into a thing of the past.

SIMONS – VANCOUVER

The large store is broken into smaller departments and “boutiques” that provide intimate shopping experiences for a vast and varied group of shoppers. Designs are intended to appeal to these diverse groups while focusing on the universal Simons principles of approachability and accessibility: style-savvy and detailed design; clever without being trendy or trite. Departments or shops are further subdivided for ease of flow and navigation. Service areas are punctuated through the departments and anchor fitting room clusters. Vancouver’s Park Royal store positions fitting rooms as comfortable and inspired places of engagement. The creation of these inspiring “pause points” within the store showcases fashion-forward displays, comfortable seating areas and art while providing inspiration and reprieve from the stimulating store environment. These areas emit a lifestyle, in tune with departmental shoppers, nodding to a residential and warm ambience through their eclectic juxtaposition of elements and materials. Simons at Park Royal embodies style. The store is a modern shopping environment that cleverly mixes design cues, palettes, details, art and displays to imbue an eclectic, warm and residentially-inspired environment.

TELUS CONNECTED EXPERIENCE STORE – TEC

When one of Canada’s fastest growing telecommunications companies decided to re-envision their bricks-and-mortar retail concept, they worked with their designer partners on a retail strategy that visualized a “playground” that brings convergence to life for consumers. Aptly named the TELUS Connected Experience store, the space encourages shoppers to immerse themselves and learn how their mobile devices enhance their diverse lifestyles. Smart phones take a back seat enabling shoppers to touch, test and play with a specially curated selection of products that, among many things, track fitness results, monitor home and personal security, introduce new cooking methods or achieve the perfect audio experience.

This workplace includes collaborative zones and informal intersection points to allow their user groups to keep the segregation required while facilitating cross pollination to increase efficiency. Their innovative new design lowered their workstation panels, increased their conference room glass, increased natural light and introduced brand loyalty to their environment. Bayer’s new space contains a multitude of work spaces including benching, 6x6 workstations, offices, small and large huddle rooms, multiple types of ancillary break out areas, and formal meeting rooms. Their new employee cafeteria and outdoor spaces also contributed to employee health and wellbeing. The design team assisted in the branding at the exterior of the building to ensure the Bayer brand is visible to the outside world.

PROJECT

BROOKFIELD RENEWABLE – GANITEAU OFFICE

Brookfield Renewable were early adopters of open concept, low panel systems and eliminated closed offices as early as 2002. For the Gatineau office, the design team further developed this planning model. Perimeter meeting space was replaced with storefront glazed meeting space on the interior surrounding the core. The systems furniture panels were further lowered with bin storage incorporated under the work surface in an open shelf. Brookfield Renewable wanted a clean, professional, and light-filled environment. The facility needed to impress potential investors without appearing ostentatious. Creating an identity that was uniquely Brookfield Renewable was important, and the design team achieved this effect through the use of art. A commissioned art installation located behind the reception desk loosely represents river systems, one of several renewable resources that Brookfield manages.

PROJECT

TD BANK GROUP TECH INCUBATOR

Challenged to meet strict budget expectations, the design celebrates a raw aesthetic while providing enough spatial variety to invite face-to-face interactions to spark innovation. Essentially one large meeting hub, the space is anchored by two expansive gateways, “the diner” with a unique, sculptural light fixture at the front entrance, and “the garage” at the back entrance. The work environment is comprised of a vast tech talk area, six hackable rooms that can be reconfigured into three generous workspaces, an assortment of tech-supported formal and informal meeting rooms, multiple shared offices, phone rooms, and collaborative lounges. These spaces surround a commingling of fixed and reconfigurable individual work settings. The back-of-office area features several amenities including shower rooms, barrier-free washrooms, and a wellness room. INTERIOR DESIGNER:

The vision for the project became clear through a series of explorations with key stakeholders. This resulted in providing the end-user with a flexible blend of fixed and reconfigurable spaces to suit all work modes. The design team successfully achieved the right look and feel, while maintaining the firm’s overall brand essence.

GOOGLE – TORONTO 9TH FLOOR

Although Google’s Toronto Headquarters were completed just a few short years ago, the tech giant’s workforce is expanding at a rapid pace. As the facility neared maximum capacity, the sales team found themselves requiring additional space within the building. A steady increase in client traffic, coupled with a shortage of conference rooms created a need for a floor that would be devoted to meeting and collaboration space. Unlike the other workplace floors, this new one was to have particular focus on the client experience. The design was to be harmonious with the rest of the facility, yet it needed to be distinctly elevated. The aesthetic should be playful – but not trendy. The mood had to be fun and colourful, but with a level of sophistication.

HOLT RENFREW

Holt Renfrew’s Head Office is adjacent to its Toronto flagship store location on Bloor Street West, also known as “Canada’s Mink Mile” recognizing the luxury retail brands that line the street. The building has been the home of Holt Renfrew’s offices since the late 1950’s when it was built. It is currently in the process of being repositioned.

The visioning process resulted in the design of a 100 percent open office concept, whereas initial program requested over 70 private offices. Their new dedicated workspace is now off limits to anyone other than staff and known as ‘behind the curtain’. Senior leadership, initially slated for private offices, are provided larger workstations that are strategically adjacent to a private meeting room. On the 11th floor, the reception area is adjacent to a meeting area known as the ‘Conference Centre’, organized along a spacious promenade, anchored at one end with the boardroom at glazing and “The Apartment”, a luxurious setting for private meetings and press conferences, at the other.

PROJECT

HULLMARK OFFICES – 619 QUEEN WEST

Hullmark purchased the lot in 2011 and wanted to restore the same level of fine-grain urban retail to this vibrant stretch. Heritage Toronto and the local councillor wanted a solution that reflected and preserved the heritage elements of the destroyed storefront. The team designed a three-storey building that included a steel façade treated with bronze and adorned with die-cut holes that form a pointillism recreation of the heritage building. This reinterpretation of restoration allows a new material language that does more than just preserve. As a testament to their mandate of restoring older urban sites, and to reflect the changing nature of the business from its start-up ethos to a more mature and confident brand, Hullmark chose to locate their offices on the third storey of this new building. In keeping with Hullmark’s philosophy, the exterior and interior were kept relatively modest with strategically minimal resources for maximum impact and value. The style was influenced by the client’s recent business trip to Scandinavia where he was impressed by their minimalist and clean aesthetic.

JOHN DEERE FINANCIAL

Functioning for 20 years in outdated offices spread over three floors, John Deere Financial was seeking an inspired, cohesive alternative to re-engage the staff and attract Millennials while ensuring the concerns of their dedicated team of Baby Boomers were addressed. To manage the change for staff from the old model of perimeter offices and highpanelled workstations, representatives from all departments participated in a focus group. Additional discussions surrounding the success of open planning lead to a decision to eliminate all offices, all staff in workstations, becoming the first headquarters to initiate this concept. The search for space yielded a new build in a multi-flex “cold-shell” complex. The open floor plate and 18’ deck with high perimeter windows contributed to and helped establish the overall design direction; a wide open space filled with daylight and neutral finishes throughout with complimentary natural elements.

PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE

With the merger of publishing heavyweights Penguin and Random House, consolidating under a shared vision and roof required reading between the lines. A 100 percent open office rewrites how people at Penguin Random House work. Gone are the 200+ square foot offices in favour of an open environment conducive not only to working alone, but to working together – on a scale that was impossible when divided by walls and stacks. Celebrating the shared love of literature, the fully open environment is punctuated with nooks and crannies for reading and meetings of all sizes. The new space has changed how people at Penguin Random House work. Instead of being buried beneath stacks of books in private offices, people work amongst their peers in the bright, open office; while shelves upon shelves of custom millwork ensure that beloved books are showcased with intent.

CABIN

The sequence of spatial experiences is highly engineered in order to create a distinct narrative. The visitor is greeted by entering an 8’-0” x 8’-0” raw, black shipping container. This generates immediate awareness of the contextual surroundings. Walking down the narrow corridors of the containers, the walls are clad in finished plywood, further exaggerating the temporary nature of the sales centre and providing an indication of the materiality to come, yet maintaining consideration for the economy for the project budget. In progressing through the narrow corridors highlighting project features, finishes, and floor plans, the visitor is finally greeted at the end of the industrial procession by the grand double height and double width model suite, which becomes the destination of the journey. To contrast the plywood surrounding, wide, oiled oak planks line the floor, walls, and ceiling, creating an immediate connection with the quality of materiality, finish and experience of a cabin.

KYLEMORE PRESENTATION CENTRE

A luxury home builder (single and multifamily) preferred to make the move to a permanent new home sales gallery located in the vicinity of most of their projects. The gallery would be used to introduce all of the upcoming projects to the marketplace, regardless of what type of project it was. In this case, the gallery would be branded towards the company, rather than any reference to a marketing campaign or a singular project. The building designed for this function was an attractive commercial building, strategically situated on a major intersection close to the existing corporate office. Single storey in height, it included high ceilings and a large amount of glass designed prior to the conceptualization of the interiors. The client desired to go with a fully electronic presentation, with all marketing to be on flat screens. There was to be no static marketing material anywhere. A flex space also had to be included in a changeable show suite with each new project to be launched.

100 BROADVIEW

A self-storage facility beneath a new condominium at the corner of two busy streets, 100 Broadview was an unremarkable and rather awkward brick and beam building in Toronto’s east end. Beyond 100 Broadview’s virtual invisibility, it was also inaccessible. The at-grade entry denied direct, barrier-free access, forcing entrants to climb a few feet to the “ground floor” or descend a few steps to the lower level. Hallways lacked signage or wayfinding, creating further confusion and discouraging tenancy.

The client’s mandate for this design was to upgrade 100 Broadview by recognizing and embracing the building’s potential and history, while infusing it with a contemporary spirit that would transform it into an attractive environment for quality tenants willing to pay a bit more for a well-designed space, a vibrant, neighbourhood hub, and a wise investment in the property for the long-term. The client wanted to make a bold statement at grade—something that would demarcate 100 Broadview as a creative hub.


Congratulations to all of this year’s ARIDO Award winners! We believe inspiring spaces can enrich lives and businesses around the world.
