LoversLand reached out to Castor Design to create a bridal salon that stands apart from the ordinary boutique. The front of the space is pared down and sleek, with white walls and piping connecting shelves, lighting, and lace curtained change areas. At the back of the shop is a tented space called The Haven, a by-appointment place for one-on-one fittings and style consultations. While providing privacy for those inside, it also builds a sense of excitement to peer through the seam as you enter your own secret fort. Above the staircase is an installation of bulbs arranged in the letters “XO” and lit through induction. The store is located at 215 Ossington Ave., Toronto.
Parts & Labour Burger is a Queen Street West restaurant designed and owned by Castor. Launched in 2014, it showcases Parts & Labour’s menu mainstay, and builds upon their reputation for having the best burger in town.
Parts & Labour opened in 2010 to major acclaim as the new cultural hub of Parkdale – the hip west end neighborhood in downtown Toronto. The 5,000 square-foot space boasts a haute cuisine restaurant/bar overseen by Chef Matthew Matheson, who harvests some of his ingredients from the rooftop garden. A live-music venue on the lower level rounds out the experience brought to you by the guys behind The Social and Oddfellows.
