1181 Queen West is a new lifestyle development being built close to the sought-after Ossington neighbourhood in Toronto. This project is a 15 storey residential development with 112 units. Skale wanted to create an elevated product that had a refined, artful luxury that was different from anything that people had seen in the Queen West area.
This allowed our design team to think about how they would create a luxury product that was inspired by both the city of Toronto and the Queen West neighbourhood. One of the main design principles was the idea of Chiaroscuro, which is an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on something.
