EL GREEKO – TORONTO, ON

Studio ArchiFad was commissioned to deliver the design, permit package and contract administration for the interior fit-up of this 3,600 sq.ft. Commercial unit in Town of Richmond Hill.
Creating the Cyan brand that mixes the nightlife ambiance with the Middle Eastern dining and hookah flare was a fun challenge. The change of unit use from bank to lounge resulted in radical changes to the unit layout, including the fire rating of the unit, installing new commercial kitchen and increasing occupancy load from 10 to 100. We addressed all challenges in a creative yet cost effective manner.
Cyan Café & Lounge opened April 2014.

The complex construction process of this 200,000 square foot shopping centre in Toronto involved the phased demolition of an existing suburban enclosed mall which had outlived its useful life. Existing tenants were maintained in their premises while the new buildings were constructed. The project is anchored by a large format Canadian Tire store, Price Chopper, and Shoppers Drug Mart.

Inspired by the crystalline forms in the ROM's mineralogy galleries, Libeskind has proposed a structure of organically interlocking prismatic forms, turning this important corner of Toronto and the entire museum complex into a luminous beacon, a showcase of people, events, and objects.

The crystal transforms the ROM's fortress-like character, turning it into an inspired atmosphere dedicated to the resurgence of the museum as the dynamic centre of Toronto.

The heritage buildings were restored in a contemporary and clean way while paying homage to the original early 1900s design, providing a beautiful contrast between the new and the old. Total construction cost around $300M.

Studio ArchiFad is a diverse firm, fully licensed to provide architectural services in Ontario. Since our Launch in 2011, we have worked on several residential, commercial, restaurants and hospitality projects.
