One Bloor Sales Center by Cecconi Simone and Eventscape

January 13, 2012

Canadian interior designers Cecconi Simone worked with Eventscape, a custom architectural fabricator, to create the sales center for the One Bloor residential development in Toronto, Canada.


Project description from Eventscape:

Eventscape engineered, fabricated and installed the diverse custom elements with multiple material finishes – each one featuring a high degree of design and engineering sophistication. Completion of this project was required within a very limited time period. Eventscape’s versatile, flexible team provided solutions that could be implemented quickly and efficiently. The collaborative design/engineering and fabrication process facilitated design changes and the precise finishes required.

Custom Sofa:
An impressive 14 ft. long custom organic-shaped sofa covered with embossed leather greets the visitors to the center. Precise templates and careful pattern matching were required to create the complex curved form and flawless finish.

Glass Wall Panels:
Black back-painted glass panels with velour finish and bevelled edges make up the 3 wall surfaces. Additional custom iPad holders, 20 LCD screens, sandblasted backlit lettering with LED lighting and a hidden door were also integrated.

Center Hub:
White faux leather covers the curved wood and metal CNC cut framework of the center hub. The integrated seating niche features elegant complex curved metal benches which transition to the textile. Nestled in the interior, the seats are finished with embossed leather. Eventscape also built the inset fireplace which contains an eco friendly bioethanol burner.

Tile Wall:
Above the benches, glittering glass tiles cover the wall. Glass tiles also finish the exterior of the custom sample table.

Multiple custom elements
Over 15 custom elements were engineered, fabricated and installed by Eventscape.

Curved Ceiling Feature:
White faux leather covers the reception wall, desk and ceiling feature. Rolled aluminum tubes, laser cut integrated light cove and connecting plates complete the 20 ft. long curved ceiling feature.

Decorative Columns:
Decorative Tee columns are built of solid aluminum with a spun aluminum cone top. Custom bronze plating and hand rubbed black oxide give the structures a rich patina finish.

Reception Desk:
The faux leather finished cantilevered desk appears to float in the wall opening. The custom CNC cut electro-plated aluminum trim was finished in brown patina and the corners were hand rolled to fit the compound curves of the wall opening faces.

Backlit Graphics:
Frosted graphic text on back-painted glass panels on the wall, contrast with the warm tones of the sample table. The finish samples were grouped by area by building custom CNC cut trays and highlighted by concealed LED strip edge lighting under the Starphire glass top.
