Designed by Heather Dubbeldam and Tania Ursomarzo
Artists/architects team Heather Dubbeldam and Tania Ursomarzo have created an installation representing a cross-section through the primary planes of the building – walls, ceiling, and floor – in two “wrapping” architectural expressions that are an organizational device for the requirements of a hotel room. An element of skeletal construction echoes the structural framework of the room and wraps vertically around the space, supporting a floating bed plane, side tables and desk surface, while another plane wraps horizontally about the walls, referencing the window in the form of a continuous strip of light. Combined, these two elements integrate all the programmatic components of the room, floating within the existing restored Victorian shell.
Heather Dubbeldam is Toronto-based architect and photographer who runs a multi-disciplinary design firm and architecture practice. As Vice-Chair of the Toronto Society of Architects (TSA) she is actively involved in promoting architecture in the community at large.
