While the exterior of the 29-storey Diamond Schmitt-designed Toronto tower makes a strong aesthetic statement in its own right, our first look at the interiors reveals a bold collection of amenities. An elegant industrial-chic aesthetic—punctuated by a black and white colour palette—sets the tone for Whitehaus Condos' interior amenities, which offer something a little more audacious than many of the city's new condos.
The 366-suite tower will feature one, two, and three-bedroom suites, ranging in size from 377 to 1,074 ft². For residents, the Cecconi Simone-appointed suite interiors will be dominated by minimalistic black and white tones, allowing residents to impose their own sense of style on each home. As for the shared amenities, Whitehaus' ping pong lounge maintains the black and white motif, making for a simple yet luxurious space. Outfitted with television screens and couches, the lounge's panoramic views provide an elegant backdrop to the easy-going space.
Like the ping pong lounge, the other amenity areas are largely interactive spaces, which could help foster a more communal and neighbourly atmosphere among residents. In addition, a focus on creativity and expressive potential underscores the amenity program. An artists' studio and a collaborative event kitchen (below) number among Whitehaus' amenities, with both spaces overlooking a large outdoor terrace.
Both spaces are characterized by a simple, neo-industrial aesthetic, feautring rich concrete tones and exposed brick. The artists' studio (seen below) is particularly notable feature, since the shared space is one of the city's few condo amenities geared specifically towards creative output. Painters, sculptors, and hobbyists are all provided a place to experiment and create in a low-key and friendly environment.
The expansive outdoor terrace is perhaps the most impressive amenity, however, with ample greenery and a wealth of seating options situated alongside Whitehaus' green roof. Also featuring outdoor ping pong tables, the terrace will overlook Yonge Street right at the heart of Toronto's growing Midtown cluster.
Whitehaus' other amenities will also be largely concentrated atop the podium. A fitness centre—divided into weight and cardio areas—will look out over a quieter part of the city, while men's and women's change rooms will be located near the elevators. The building will also feature a ground-floor pet spa, allowing residents' furry friends to get cleaned up before coming home.
