Mile Inn’s new Toronto office, a renovated three-story Victorian house, has the vibes of a trendy boutique hotel, right across the street from the AGO on Dundas.
This transformation was made possible with the help of Mahmood Popal and Danielle Hession from interior design firm MAAST. The result: tons of communal space and a distinct vibe for each boutique space where the main floor’s kitchen and living room acts as a meeting and eating area for crews from Apollo Studios, Morrison, 1one Production and Popp Rok.
Shout out to Kijiji, IKEA and Toronto’s thrift markets that were key contributors on the refurbishment.
“We were prepared for a long hunt,” said Yan Dal Santo, Co-President of Mile Inn. “We had such particular needs — soundproof studios with dimmers, a cinema room, various office spaces — but we also wanted enough communal space to inspire each other and our clients.” It was important that Mile Inn office still felt like a small shop, even with its long labyrinthine hallways.
