Designer's statement: It was designed and built by Damon Snider of TYPE-D Living. I designed this loft with inspiration from both New York and LA, fusing two styles to create an industrial modern space with worn in character in the Beaches of Toronto, Canada. It is approximately 1300 SF with 20’ ceilings and situated about a block away from the beach.
The project is called “The Beach Loft” and it is a renovation that I fully designed and built. My company is TYPE-D Living and I specialize in the design and build of restaurants, bars, and unique residential spaces. My background is Industrial Design, and I am a one man show that designs and builds all the custom elements (furniture, installations, custom lighting, etc) myself.
This particular loft is something that I own, and spent approximately 5 months building. The space was a full gut, and nothing from the original space was left the same. The biggest undertaking was building a second mezzanine with an industrial steel grating bridge to connect it to the original mezzanine where the bedroom is.
TYPE-D Living is a full service interior design and fabrication studio. We specialize in Industrial Designed spaces and custom furniture and lighting, with a unique ability in balancing refined modern design with raw industrial elements. Our principal designer Damon Snider has been designing and building bars, restaurants, retail spaces, and high profile residential projects since 2012, and is constantly setting the bar as an industry leader.
