Toronto, Ontario, Canada-- International Property Awards named McGregor Design Group’s contemporary space for a Toronto gold mining company “Best Office Interior” in Canada.
“The client was a start-up that needed a corporate image to help them quickly succeed in the areas of recruitment and investor engagement,” said Lynn McGregor, founding principal of McGregor Design Group. “For us, it was the perfect opportunity to start from a fresh perspective and demonstrate what our team could do. The result is an office that people take pride working in—and one that exceeded client objectives in terms of timing, budget, and more.”
Situated in a LEED Silver building, the once open raw concrete space was converted into a polished executive office, reflecting the mining business while showcasing the owner’s art collection. Against an art-friendly white canvas, McGregor’s team incorporated: vertical reveals and curvilinear metal inlays to reference dunes; precious rocks in recessed illuminated boxes to suggest being underground; and custom carpets hand-embroidered with glittering silk threads to resemble gold dust. Moreover, the team decidedly sourced much of the furniture locally, including the Canadian granite floors.
“Research shows that workplace quality plays a critical factor in job satisfaction and we’re thrilled with the new space; visitors to our office also regularly comment on its visionary features,” said the client. “McGregor Design Group enabled us to accomplish our goal of providing a truly memorable space for staff and shareholders alike. A perfect balance of functionality and style, this unique environment conveys a message of success and stability.”
As representative for ‘Best Office Interior’ in Canada, McGregor Design Group will go on to compete for the best workplace design in the world. Winners will be announced in December.
