Christopher Bates, Toronto | 50th International Design Competition Winner

Showroom or office? Creative studio or fashion runway? VIP event space or warehouse? This 1,000-sq-ft. space is all of the above.

The Christopher Bates and DK Studio Architects team created a flexible, multi-function home for a rising Canadian designer.

Central to the concept is the glossy white runway framed by a 3-dimensional logo wall.

Customers try on clothes, then hit the catwalk, and snap a selfie -- experiencing the synergy of fashion and architecture; brand and design – while blending and blurring function.
