The Madison is a striking new building at Yonge and Eglinton in midtown Toronto. An essential component of the development program for STUDIO tla was to design roofscape amenity spaces that are beautiful, functional and reflect the excitement of the neighbourhood. The comfortable outdoor gathering spaces that were created relate seamlessly to the adjacent indoor amenity rooms. Outdoor lounges, private gazebos with barbeques, and quiet refuges are situated within a serene setting that spans two large roof decks. An extensive, sustainable planting scheme using contained beds and raised planters defines the spaces on the deck. Hard and soft decking materials, along with lighting, combine to create a sense of warmth throughout every season. Special highlights on the deck include an outdoor fireplace, a tiered reflecting pool and a striking metal sculpture. The Madison Condominium is an example of utilizing a holistic design approach to successfully integrate a variety of interior and exterior amenities within the overall development concept.
