383 Sorauren will be a 10 storey condominium in the heart of Roncesvalles. The interiors are inspired by and designed to evoke the neighbourhood’s rich industrial heritage and its emergence as an art and design district.
There are no pretensions of an uptown lifestyle or aesthetic; instead, there is a more functional, purposeful, perhaps studio-like narrative envisioned for the design of the suites and amenity areas.
The use of raw, unadorned materials such as oil-finished wood, hot-rolled and stainless steel that can be found in the public areas and the residential suites, define and reinterpret the industrial roots of the project’s context. Subtle, simple, yet effective components can be found in the details of the space.
For example, kitchens have integrated wood recesses to facilitate access to frequently used tableware or for the display of decorative pieces. A stainless steel backsplash is folded horizontally to function as an additional shelf.
Some units, such as the one demonstrated in the model suite, have bedrooms that open up completely, that can be integrated into the living areas or can function as a home office.
