IBI Group designed the Azura Condominiums in Willowdale, Toronto, a vibrant and thriving community that has both calm residential neighbourhoods and bustling high rise scenery. The high rise condo embodies curvilinear lines, tall grand spaces, natural finishes and a sophisticated colour palette. The organic forms of clouds and sculptural calming atmosphere allows this building to provide a luxurious feel to its residents; this translates to a welcoming design that is inclusive for all potential residents, from young professionals to new families.
Located in the heart of Toronto’s Financial District, the IBI-designed INDX Condos is a 54-storey, mixed-use building that blends together the traditional with the modern. Abutting and cantilevering over the historic Graphic Arts building, INDX takes its design cue from this Beaux Arts-style neighbour in a composition consisting of a glass and limestone podium, from which a layered glass and metal tower finds its place within the Toronto skyline.
The Hazelton Hotel and Residences
The Hazelton Hotel and Residences is downtown Toronto’s first true luxury hotel in the bustling Yorkville neighourhood, where all the best designers, boutiques, art galleries, cafes and restaurants converge. IBI Group provided architecture services for the design of the five-star, four-storey, 77-room boutique hotel located in the podium, and 18 luxury residential suites in the five storeys above.
Architecturally, the four-storey hotel is articulated with a layered brick and stone podium, which is intended to reinforce the three and four-storey scale of Yorkville and to provide ample opportunity for street-related activity and sidewalk cafes on widened setbacks. Exterior French doors open onto private terraces, providing a feeling of intimate luxury conceived on a European scale.
