Marc Laurent Store, Phase 3, Toronto (1989-1991)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 71 drawings
    2 photographs
Scope and content:
This project series documents an expansion of the Marc Laurent store at 110 Bloor Street West in Toronto in 1989. No project number was identifed.
This project consisted of the eastward expansion and renovations to the existing high-end retail store. The original design of the store was completed prior to the founding of KPMB, by Bruce Kuwabara and Thomas Payne in 1986. The new space saw the addition of 1000 square feet to the store at the street level and relocation of the entrance doors to accommodate this expansion. An expansion of the lower concourse level also added 1,457 square feet. The new spaces extended the architectural style already established in earlier phases of the store's development. Materials used in this project, as in earlier projects, included steel, glass, rubber, and aluminum, combined with natural wood and stone. This project is considered Phase 3 of the store's development, with 2 future phases to be completed by KPMB Architects soon after.
The project is recorded through original drawings and photographs dating from 1989-1991. The drawings consist primarily of sketches, plans, sections, and furnishing drawings. The photographs show the finished interiors.
