TORONTO, Oct. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - On Wednesday night the design community flocked to Toronto's historic Liberty Grand for the 2012 ARIDO Awards. Taking home an Award of Merit was Crayon Design Company Inc. for the design and collaborative effort of The Metrick System's Toronto headquarters. Situated at 100 Miranda Avenue, The Metrick System is a 5,800 square foot warehouse space housing offices and both a recording and movie studio. Three vintage 1950's Airstream trailers have been retrofitted and included in the space for visual and sound separation in three key areas. The high impact, and completely functional aluminum shells enhance the imagery of the film industry, playing homage to old Hollywood.
The winners from this year's awards were selected by a panel of five judges who picked 22 projects from nearly 100 entries to receive recognition in 11 different categories. Taking into consideration innovation, creativity, and the effectiveness of applied design solutions, ARIDO (Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario) takes pride in showcasing the absolute best of the best.
"It was thrilling to receive an ARIDO Award and be in the company of winners from the design community. Working with Crayon was wonderful, just about every client who comes through our doors asks to work here," commented Laurence Metrick, President and Creative Director of The Metrick System.
