Union Station Revitalization Toronto

0.01

Client: Osmington Inc.

Scale: 400,000sqft (36,000sqmt)

Budget: Withheld

Type: Civic Institutional

Location: Toronto, Canada

In 2009, Osmington, Inc. won the Head Lease for one of the largest civic infrastructure revitalization projects in the world: Toronto’s Union Station. Osmington handpicked PARTISANS to develop a comprehensive design vision that would leverage Union’s identity as a major transit hub and convert the station into a popular and prestigious cultural destination. The firm’s ability to synthesize the client’s ambitions into a coherent architectural and functional argument helped guide the project forward—to fit-out Union Station as a fluid stage for Toronto's most ambitious culinary, cultural, design, and retail offerings.

To accomplish the creative visioning, PARTISANS’ technical team immediately synthesized all existing 2D drawings into a state-of-the-art 3D BIM Model (Building Information Modelling). The latter serves a crucial double function: through parametric modeling technology, the BIM model is both a construction document and design tool that can be responsive to necessary adjustments. Drawing on its technologically agile team, PARTISANS assimilates new advances as they occur and thus is always prepared to meet the client’s needs.

PARTISANS delivers sophisticated creative, cultural, and design visioning, and the technological know-how to implement it.
