Marc Laurent Store, Phase 4 Hugo Boss Store, Toronto (1991-1992)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 203 drawings (including 9 reprographic copies)
Scope and content:
This project series documents an expansion of the Marc Laurent store at 110 Bloor Street West in Toronto in 1989. The office identified the project number as 9109.
This project consisted of the expansion of the high-end retail store whose original design was completed prior to the founding of KPMB, by Bruce Kuwabara and Thomas Payne in 1986. The new space was made to accommodate the Hugo Boss Store within the Marc Laurent Store. The store consisted of a street level space connected by stairs to a lower concourse level, with the new store space added at the street level. The new space extended the architectural style already established in earlier phases of the store's development. The new area had granite and honed area stone flooring, aluminum racks and display cases, sandblasted glass display walls, and imbuya veneer change rooms and panel doors. This project is considered Phase 4 of the store's development, with 1 future phase to be completed by KPMB Architects soon after.
The project is recorded through drawings dating from 1991-1992. The drawings are mostly originals and include sections, elevations, floor and ceiling plans, details, axonometric studies and perspectives. Also present are drawings of custom furnishings designed for the store such as display cases, racks and counters, and architectural elements such as walls, doors and stairs.
