Toronto will soon be home to a new architectural landmark, One Delisle – the first residential building in Canada designed by visionary architect, Jeanne Gang, Founder and Partner of Studio Gang.
Gang was the only architect named as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2019. She is a MacArthur Fellow and a leading advocate for gender equality in the fields of architecture and design. With offices in Chicago, New York, San Francisco, and Paris, Studio Gang is responsible for some of the world’s most diverse and compelling buildings and spaces. Gang has been exhibited and honoured at the Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. An elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, she has also been awarded the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award, the Louis I. Kahn Memorial Award, the Marcus Prize for Architecture, and was Architectural Review’s Architect of the Year. She has written three books, and has lectured at Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Rice, and IIT.
Yonge and St. Clair is rich in history and home to some of Toronto’s most luxurious residences, renowned schools, shops and restaurants, and green spaces like the recently upgraded David A. Balfour Park, forested trails, ravines, and Toronto’s oldest reservoir. Yonge and St. Clair is a place of significance to Toronto and will soon be one of its most distinctive.
Drawn to the narrative of Yonge and St. Clair’s past and its strong sense of community, award-winning developer Slate Asset Management began investing in the neighborhood in 2013. Since then, Slate has worked to renew Yonge and St. Clair, supporting public art, improving the public realm, retail, and office buildings. Slate’s contributions are an ongoing project that will work to reveal the rich culture of the area and position it towards an increasingly vibrant future.
Each interior element has been thoughtfully considered; unbound to any singular trend, the materials, forms, and textures that adorn One Delisle are timeless in their appeal and contemporary in their execution. Studio Gang has contrasted organic forms with contemporary finishes, natural materials like wood and stone sit elegantly alongside custom metal fixtures. The design of One Delisle’s interior tells a story of place – its past, present, and future – through a curated selection of artwork and objects. With a focus on local artists from Toronto, including the sculptures displayed in the shared spaces of the building, each piece links back to the origins of the building’s setting. The furniture has been selected with equal precision, and is arranged to evoke both comfort and conversation amongst residents. In selecting the furnishings for One Delisle, Mason Studio also selected key pieces from Toronto designers and makers, reinforcing the sense of community that makes the neighbourhood of Yonge and St. Clair so vibrant.
WELLNESS The pool and spa at One Delisle are expertly designed to optimize the wet to dry cycles that are so beneficial for our health. One Delisle’s focus on health and wellbeing culminates in the spa, an area that consists of intimate, immersive, and private spaces. In the eucalyptus room, curved seats look out onto a calming Japanese garden. The salt room offers a place for contemplation and reflection. The dry sauna and salt room lend themselves to recovery. The private terraces that extend from the spa include stone tiles and wood wraps each space. From the spa, residents can continue to the pool where richly textured tile surfaces surround and frame the feature wall. The pool offers a bright, airy space with double-height glazing that brings in the sky and surrounding landscape. Seamlessly connected to the outdoor ravine terrace, the pool is an elegant yet energized space for exercising and socializing.
