Drawing inspiration from the industrial and artistic character of the neighbourhood, the architecture of the Museum Flats speaks of a rich heritage and timeless design. The new 10-storey condominium will feature a strikingly articulated facade that will house a collection of commercial spaces and over 150 residences adjacent to the Auto Building in the heart of the Lower Junction. A public park and plaza space shared with the Museum of Contemporary Art will provide an escape to nature. Designed by architect Peter Clewes of architectsAlliance, the building’s eye-catching exterior will become a new Toronto icon. Interiors designed by the boutique firm AOD will feature private and spacious outdoor rooms as well as balconies.
Museum Flat's launched this spring with the Junction Gallery Exhibition The Mecca featuring works by Hank Willis Thomas, TALWST, Toyin Ojih, Odutola and more. An exhibition space that brings contemporary art to a broad audience in the Junction, the Junction Gallery has hosted internationally acclaimed artists such as Kent Monkman and Kim Dorland. Whether designing a pop-up show, permanent gallery or private collection, curator Ray McAuliffe produces unique experiences that do not adhere to a standard disposition. The inaugural exhibition, re:NEW transforming tradition, showcased emerging and established artists in a variety of mediums, including a sculpture series by Abby McGuane and a series of eighteen prints by Tyler Bright Hilton.
