Designing One of UrbanToronto’s Most Influential Buildings in Ontario

Picasso on Richmond, a mixed-use condominium project, occupies an iconic site in downtown Toronto. It lies to the north of Richmond St. West on axis with Beverley and Widmer Streets.

A 10-story podium defines and animates the street. Extending from the podium is a tower punctuated by white and grey volumes that shift outward. These are accentuated by a dramatic red cut creating a dynamic sculptural form. The many terrace roofs are planted with gardens, each with unique attributes.
Building amenities include an open-air lobby, bar, lounge and dining areas, a media lounge, and yoga, fitness and spa facilities.

The outdoor terrace and roof tops have themed gardens planted at different elevations including a hot-water oasis.
