The architectural design for On The Danforth is destined to impact this charming Danforth neighbourhood with its clean lines and traditional character. Rising 10 stories above Danforth Avenue, On The Danforth is situated beside a classically proportioned Hydro building that inspired the use of complimentary brick colour on the first few floors. The design steps back on the south side revealing a clear brick base that creates a dialogue between the two structures. Kinetic elements such as L- and U-shapes in the brick running through the architecture will make the building seem to be “in motion” as the eye travels along its exterior.
As On The Danforth surpasses the adjacent building in height, its brick colour will change to a darker tone while the addition of large expanses of glass will add a contemporary flair that breaks up the mass of the building and creates an asymmetrical design sense.
Just as transit moves people, the building’s rise simulates motion, mimicking the subway transit that is at the very core of its location.
Everything about this trendy address will have an aura of urban style and flair – both residents and their guests will be impressed from the moment they enter the breathtaking lobby at On The Danforth. The rustic-chic design evokes a boutique hotel look and feel, and integrates both urban and nature-inspired elements for an air of contemporary cool. The eye is drawn in through the use of reclaimed wood slats with backlit images of branches, creating the image of a pergola that starts from the entrance to the focal point of the lobby, a welcoming oversized fireplace. A large pendant chandelier is located over the seating area. With its diversity of visual elements that brings nature into the urban landscape, this spectacular lobby design evokes the warmth of home, where residents will Live, Lounge, Love.
