The presentation centre draws inspiration from the architecture of the planned condominium by Moshe Safdie and from adjacencies to Lake Ontario and a newly-installed neighbourhood park, re-producing a park-like setting indoors.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The interior design for the 390 m² Monde presentation centre in Toronto, Canada, engenders a complex layering of surface planes and textures, accentuating extended sight lines and privileged vistas. Views are activated by an evocative and highly-tactile materiality echoing the exterior context. Stone, concrete, distressed wood and, most conspicuously, plantings are applied at amplified scale. “Nature,” in the form of artificial green walls, is re-contextualized as interior architecture. Vegetation leads the eye through the gallery, opening it up, softening it and re-defining its edges.
