146 Yonge Street
Location: Toronto, Canada
Gross Floor Area: 960 sq.m
Situated in the financial district of downtown Toronto, 146 Yonge introduces a sophisticated and elegant response to the bustling setting of Yonge Street, markedly differing itself from the overly repetitious composition of its surrounding neighbors.
Its design aims to give architectural form to the vision of Mr. Yeung’s fashion design which, as a totality, “… promotes a body language appropriate to modern urban life”. Grace of form, balance of proportions, elegance of construction and textural richness, qualities inherent in Blanc de Chine, became departure points for its design. 146 Yonge is a small building with heft - a rugged urban object with tremendous investment potential and publicity, with efficient circulation and use of space. Yet it beats a heart softened by elegant folds in its sculptural façade and ethereal light showering into its dynamic spaces; all reminiscent of movement and light on exquisite fabric.
