Elgin Loft

This major renovation of an industrial building in downtown Toronto by Solares Architecture of an industrial building in downtown Toronto consolidates a family business and an urban infill home into one building.

The impressively large, 9,000 sq.ft. building was originally built in the 1940 and wraps around a 1915-era bank on the corner of two main streets. The L-shaped building has two main branches and two separate street-facing facades, one on either street. The residents’ framing company was consolidated into the northern branch of the building. The southeast branch of the building was gutted and transformed into a three-storey, 3,000 sq.ft. home for the residents and their two young children.

The first floor, a few steps below street level, houses an enclosed garage, a spacious entranceway, a storage closet, a full bathroom, and a basement family room. On the second floor, the stairs open to a large central kitchen, with stylish industrial features. The kitchen is flanked with the children's bedroom, on the west end of the floor, and the Great Room, overlooking the street to the east. On the third floor, a skylight over the stair brings natural light to the huge family room and hallway. A huge 1,000 sq.ft. rooftop deck opens off the family room, and the master bedroom, a large laundry room, and the master bathroom are located off the hallway.

Energy efficiency was also a driving factor for this project. Additional insulation was added to the concrete structure, and highly efficient systems were installed to minimize energy waste.
