Toronto is a city rich in culture and diversity, boasting world-class food and music scenes, an industry-leading film festival, beautiful parks and recreation, and even a winning baseball team.
But everyone knows it’s what’s on the inside that really counts.
So it should come as no surprise that design enthusiasts, business moguls, and corporate slaves can all agree that Toronto is also home to some of the world’s most impeccably designed offices spaces.
Game-changing companies from all corners of the globe have set up shop in The 6ix. Combined with our own collection of notable business talent, this city definitely knows how to work it from the inside out.
That said, here’s an inside look at 11 of the Toronto’s most impressive office spaces…
A cutting-edge business reinvention firm needs a cutting-edge work environment – and that’s just what designers at B+H delivered. This award-winning space is a unique balance of bold colours and old warehouse charm, which speaks volumes to the company’s passion for helping brands make a statement.
Yabu Pushelberg is a leader in Canada’s interior design industry, so it’s no surprise their own studio is a showcase of aesthetic perfection. While the original warehouse space is blessed with good bones, it’s enhanced by the firm’s ability to create an interior environment steeped in elegance and sophistication.
The creative industry powerhouse’s Toronto office sits inconspicuously in the heart of the Distillery District, but don’t let that fool you; this interior loft space packs a big punch. The incredible architecture of the heritage Gooderham and Worts building is skillfully enhanced by the firm’s use of bright colours, communal spaces, and cozy nooks.

Design Firm: Partisans
Partisans designed this space with both form and function in mind. The undulating lines intersect with rigid glass to create a beautiful space unlike any other in this city. Plywood has simply never looked this good.
II BY IV DESIGN has a knack for designing spaces that utilize the beauty of the existing environment while embracing the brand identity of its client. This space gleams with the rustic charm of original wood beams while standout black metals and modern glazing bring it all to life.
Speaking of brand identity, no one has done a better job of capturing it than the design team at Figure3 with its work for Canada Goose. The iconic elements of the brand adorn almost every corner of this office space. The cool colours and sleek lines within the space almost make you feel excited for winter to come. Almost.
Corus Entertainment is like a playground for adults. Pops of colour, oversized furniture, and a slide are just some of the amusing elements Corus employees are privy to on the daily. But don’t be mistaken; this award-winning interior is Quandrangle’s brilliant interpretation of the client’s drive for innovation, creativity, and collaboration within its walls.
Autodesk, a leader in software design, was strived for a workplace that yielded a more engaging and interactive experience for guests and staff. Dialog Architects achieved exactly that by creating a modern tech-friendly space within the cozy arms of a warm wood interior. A striking reception winds through to a rooftop patio where collaborations (and happy hour drinks) flow freely.
HOK, another design industry heavyweight, took on their own new office space recently and the result was a major knock-out. They managed to seamlessly merge the corporate environment with sophisticated residential elements of a (very nice) home.
LinkedIn’s recently-unveiled Toronto HQ was aided by the design team at IA Interior architects. Its playful and fresh interior encourage a workplace that is both collaborative and fun. In addition to its energetic palate, the space boasts some of the most incredible views of Toronto’s downtown core. Daydream, anyone?
Twitter’s new award-winning office space in downtown Toronto is a unique blend of modern lines, natural materials, and a hint of warm Canadiana. The office is designed as an open concept studio, but has ample alcoves and seating arrangements for staff to settle in and check their tweets.
