Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Environmental Design faculty member David Grant-Rubash's architecture/design studio PHAEDRUS Studio recently completed Thor Espresso, a project down the street from OCADU near Umbra. It is a great example of blurring the boundaries between art and design and is both Toronto design destination and a potential staff/student and amenity.  David recently chatted with the owners and they are pleased to offer an OCADU discount.  The project recently won Canadian Interiors Best of Year, Architecture Masterpize and was a finalist for the Architizer A+ Awards for Architecture and Branding Categories.
