The Adelaide Project – Toronto

The Adelaide Project is a first-of-its-kind collaborative lighting studio, demonstration centre and workspace for TPL Lighting. Located in the intimate setting of an elegant heritage home in Toronto’s vibrant King West neighbourhood, The Adelaide Project seeks to create an intimate approach to experiencing and learning about today’s most innovative lighting solutions.
While The Adelaide Project is, at its core, a collaborative presentation center and curated lighting showroom, there are so many other functional uses of the space. It can be used as a venue for events, art shows, speakers, shared workspace, photography studio, etc. The intent is for The Adelaide Project to become a hub for the design community – a space that provokes thought and inspires conversation.
The intention is to rotate the lighting, as well as furnishings, art, and decor on a quarterly basis. The overarching design goal for the space was to invite people to come in and make themselves at home, and to achieve what traditional showrooms lack – character and context.
Aesthetically, Clarisa Llaneza Studio kept the overall design simple, giving a nod to the classic elements of the Victorian home in a way that complements current, more minimalistic designs.  The studio envisioned a space that would be both sleek and graphic, raw and refined, a blank canvas with personality.  Functionally, the design team envisioned a space that would allow for the flexibility to rotate products in and out of the studio frequently. To do this, a tremendous amount of work went into the electrical and lighting design.
