Sam: Manager at a Global eCommerce company

Recently transitioned from commuting to her office in downtown Toronto, to virtually leading her team from home.

"Having the opportunity to separate work and home life is becoming increasingly important in the wake of permanent working from home situations. Having a space like this which is dedicated to work time would be so valuable for those who struggle to focus amidst the hustle and bustle of home. I would recommend this type of unit for anyone who wants to better segment their work from home lifestyle, in order to make this balance more sustainable in years to come."

Wendy: Registered Massage Therapist & student at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine

"As a Registered Massage Therapist I need enough room for mobility around my table, a desk to write up my treatment notes, and a sink to wash my hands in. It was all there including a bathroom for my client's should they need it. Not to mention, having a business space where clients don't feel obligated to go through my house is a bonus!"

Magda: Accounting Associate & Artist

Need for the ability to comfortably changeover from work in accounting to her hobby in oil painting 

"Quiet. No distractions. Inviting. Lots of natural light. It felt spacious, warm, with the right amount of energy to get creative with my latest project. I would recommend this space to anyone looking for a painting studio as an affordable option that is at home, but away from home at the same time."

Amanda: Child Development Specialist & yoga enthusiast

Passionate about self restoration after work hours so she can continue to provide her clients with the best services she can offer.

"The size was perfect for my yoga mat and stretches. There was plenty of room to move and stretch out without feeling constricted at all - the perfect space to unwind after work with minimal distractions. This is especially difficult in a house with two other people, two cats and two dogs who think the only reason I would ever sit on the floor is to be trampled and licked by them!"
