"Renderings and portfolio photography capture our work in optimal settings – what about the other 364 days of the year?"

The reality for Toronto is that we experience buildings, spaces and environments under a diversity of conditions, over which we have no control. As the city was recently named the best overall place to live by the Economist’s Intelligence Unit, our built environment was put to test with this past week’s snow storm.

So, over the course of a snowy week, we set out to capture some of our current projects at the later phases of construction and see how they ‘performed’ on a typical Canadian winter day.
Our in-house photographer Terri Flinn captured 545 King Street West, Abacus Lofts and Studio on Richmond.
