The High Park
Condominium Model Suite
The interior-design concept for The High Park model suite is driven by an understanding of the project as a unique community, rooted in the timeless, eclectic character of the High Park / Bloor West Village neighbourhood in West End Toronto.
The vocabulary throughout the model embodies a fusion of old and new, with textured materials and nostalgic found-objects paired with contemporary finishes.
The model floor plan is crafted for design-savvy homeowners who truly appreciate well laid-out, open-concept living spaces, in which they can layer in their individuality.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This condominium model suite for The High Park is designed to appeal to individualistic, design-savvy homebuyers. It is driven by an understanding of the project’s enviable site, in the heart of bohemian West End Toronto.
The 53.5 m² model – re-creating an actual condominium floor plan – showcases a very extensive program within limited floor space, including a live–cook–dine area, den, bedroom, bath and abundant storage.

Interior Space and Exhibition Design
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The model is enveloped in a warm and highly-tactile fusion of old and new, with reclaimed woods, found objects and character pieces blending seamlessly with contemporary finishes, textured metals and upholstered walls. Distressed, stripped paint covers a principal wall, sliding partition and millwork backdrop in the sleep area.
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Sliding doors are employed to expand space and keep views clear. Doors to bathrooms and laundry rooms are kept away from principle areas and concealed wherever possible.
A primary sliding door – with rail that functions both as handle and ledge for artwork – serves as an extended, moveable “wall” between the sleep and living areas.
The custom kitchen island incorporates a dining surface that extends by more than a meter, fully cantilevered. Specially-designed hardware sustains the weight of the extension, allowing for unencumbered seating arrangements.
