Design / Liberty House


Toronto’s Liberty Village has gone through a striking metamorphosis, illustrating how a city grows and
transforms. With a history steeped in manufacturing; churning out carpets, toys and washing machines,
its current incarnation is all about community cohesion.

Today’s Liberty Village is a hive for young professionals and artists, and only a short Uber ride from
Toronto’s bustling core and hospitality scene. Many of the old factories in this formerly heavy industrial
area have been repurposed as lofts, while others have become restaurants, gyms, and furniture stores. It’s
no surprise that Liberty House, designed by Figure3, reflects this shift and emphasizes the togetherness
and social connectivity that is deeply rooted in this youthful, energetic community.

“Liberty House provides an exquisite level of finishing and a hospitality-inspired approach, designed
to amplify social connection and provide seamless ease of living.”

Located at the eastern edge of Liberty Village, Liberty House brings an elevated rental experience to
this vibrant Toronto neighbourhood. A host of hotel-like amenities and services are housed within an
art-forward, London-inspired design.

“One of the unique features of this project is the focus on lifestyle, connection and experiences that cater
to the target market,” notes Domenic De Freitas, Figure3 Principal. “Using local art and sophisticated
design details, Liberty House comes together in a way that feels very natural and organic within the
neighbourhood’s surroundings.

The London influence comes alive with a collection of furniture that adds character and an infusion of
colour, paired with traditional design elements like wall paneling and crown mouldings. Megan Hayward,
Senior Team Leader at Figure3 states, “There is a high level of finishing not typical of a purpose built
rental, with rich materiality and stunning details in the common areas and the suites that makes it feel
like home.”

Local art is displayed throughout the common spaces, adding character and points of interest
throughout the building that a include custom art panel in the games room, and a unique mixed media
installation in the fitness centre. “Liberty House embodies the unique essence of the neighbourhood
with eclectic styling and an art-forward approach” states Hayward.

“It provides an exquisite level of finishing
and a hospitality-inspired approach, designed to
amp up social connection and ease of living.

Liberty House suites include upscale kitchens with full-size appliances, streamlined panel-ready
dishwashers, Ceasarstone counters, and a wine fridge; features rarely offered in a rental environment.
The linear design in thekitchen and living area provide for an easy flow and helps to maximize the space.
High-quality finishes are selected for exceptional design and beauty as well as durability. Corridor
details like personal entry lights and gold accents create a welcoming experience.

The hospitality-inspired lobby has more zones for connecting, including a bar with high-top seating
and a fireside lounge with artwork prominently displayed throughout the space. To enhance and
strengthen social bonds, there’s a community kitchen and dining room, a vintage arcade room, a
terrace putting green and outdoor movie theatre. Just off the lobby, an elaborate parcel room
packs a stunning visual punch with bold colours and graphics while providing convenient and
secure parcel storage.

Liberty House Social Club offers exclusive access for residents, making it easy to connect with friends,
family and neighbours while grilling on the rooftop, playing on the putting green, or kicking back in the
outdoor movie theatre. Residents can carve out some tranquility in the yoga room, join a group
meditation in the Zen Garden, or lounge by the rooftop infinity pool, surrounded by cabanas with
incredible views of the city and waterfront. Amenities and common spaces are thoughtfully laid out
to cater to a socially active community and provide ample flexibility to entertain. Features
like the dry sauna, spin room and towel service accentuate the luxury experience.

“Liberty House brings a level of rental living not common to Liberty Village, an area that is typically
known for condos,” De Freitas explains. “It taps into a whole new market, providing an elevated lifestyle
for long-term occupancy. A concierge and staff are dedicated to maintaining the building and assisting
residents, much like in a boutique hotel.”
