The Strachan Lofts are 4 custom townhouses created from the shell of a vacant factory in Toronto. This reuse / conversion project transformed a vacant factory on a primarily residential block of Toronto. The front facade was knocked off and re-imagined as four wide townhouses with oversized bay windows interpreted in a simple modern style. A third storey was added on top of the existing concrete block and steel structure. Four massive 25 foot wide homes were carved out, each one sold as an unfinished shell to end users who completely customize each unique interior. Each unit features over 7,000 sf of living space and including private elevators, high ceilings and more. We incorporated high quality, durable materials such as limestone and bronze to heighten the character of the building.
