Yesterday was moving day as model furniture was brought into loft 2 (L2~1300 sq.ft.) at Reve, at Front and Portland. And with the incredible 18 degree weather (in March, in Canada), it was a great day to be in and out. Loft 1 (L1~1190 sq.ft.) had been finished days before, so I was able to get a good look at these unique suites in both the complete and in progress states.
Both these lofts feel like houses in the city, rather than a typical condo suite. They have doors that open onto quiet, tree-lined Niagara Street as well as entrances into the main Reve building, to access the amenities.
They feature very open spaces that are perfect for entertaining or relaxing. The master bedrooms are afforded extra privacy as they’re located on the second floor with the dens.
“I was thinking of designing for a male purchaser who loves a little bit of both modern and the ‘old’ at the same time,” says Tridel Junior Interior Designer, Phoebe Sham, on designing loft 1. “Every piece of furniture is modern, but all the accessories have a vintage, aged element to them. I guess I was thinking about a traveler who loves to collect aged-looking things! This design is definitely for someone who is trendy.”
Loft 2 should be completely modeled by Friday and displays a contrasting aesthetic.
“For loft 2, I was thinking of designing for a single female purchaser who enjoys the classic look,” says Phoebe. “I wanted it to feel like a ‘home’, and everything in there is feminine and soft, such as chairs with curves and floral prints. I was inspired by French interiors.”
Both lofts feature 10 foot ceilings on the main floor and 9 foot on the second, with quartz counter tops, pre-engineered wood flooring and modern wood and glass panel rail stairs.
They have smooth ceilings and appliances include Liebherr fridge and freezer; AEG cooktop, stove, microwave and dishwasher; and Whirlpool Cabrio Platinum washer and dryer side by side.
