Diverse Character Multi Use Studio

2000 SqFt

274 Reviews


6000sq/ft building in the heart of downtown, with two entire floors of production studio space, private self-contained offices, separate boardroom, full kitchen, and exclusive access to a 3000sq/ft rooftop with absolutely stunning city skyline views.

2000sq/ft production studio and event space with locking privacy, 100 year old character and factory windows. Furnished with modern couches and decor, and a borderline obsessive tropical plant collection... ;)

Number one performing listing in Toronto, with countless photography clients ($40 hourly), a reknowned film production location ($100 hourly) for movie and television scenes, commercials, and an extremely popular and versatile location for music videos and other creative visual content for artists.

Looking through all of our reviews shows this is truly an exceptional space for event bookings as well over the years with many seminars, large group meetings, private celebratory events such as weddings, showers, proposals, birthdays, popular for product launch, release party, there's nothing we haven't hosted at this point...

**PLZ NOTE - event rentals (typically starting from $100/hourly) are individually determined on a simple and transparently shared formula, based on their unique production details; hours on-site, number of attendee's, food & beverage sales, in-house catering requests, staffing requests, set-up assitance requests, additional furniture and decor requests, peripheral area usage such as kitchen, rooftop etc etc, so basically speaking all of the things adding to the overall 'impact to the space'

Dylan was absolutely FANTASTIC! This was my very first time using this site and renting space for a personal project. I had so many questions and Dylan was very thorough and made sure I was clear before the booking was made. The space is amazing and had everything I needed. I will definitely be back in a handful of months to run an even bigger event and this space will be our home for several days. I often come back and forth to Toronto for work and this is the location I know best. It's in the heart of the Entertainment district close to eateries, transit and tons of activities. Thanks Dylan, I appreciate that you host your location on this site I can see why its favoured among so many folks. I look forward to doing business with you soon. cheers!

Dylan made booking Diptych Studio so so easy! He was always very easy to get a hold of and was very thorough with information. He was also available on site if we had any questions. The space was exactly as pictured, and offered many options for the shoot we were having. We also had availability to multiple pieces of furniture and various elements that added to the ambience. All in all we had a great experience and will definitely go back!

Booking a space for a wedding rehearsal in TO, from Vancouver, felt like a risky venture. Dylan was timely in his responses and made it possible for our son and fiancee to see the place and confirm it met their expectations before booking. When we arrived to set up on the day he jumped in to help and was so chill about the whole process. The title of the listing is spot on and we'd recommend Dylan as a host any day!

This is a fabulous space! Dylan was easy to communicate with and was always available to attend to all of our production needs quickly and efficiently.

This space is so well rounded and amazingly equipped with everything you need for a photo shoot! Really loved the vibe ! Dylan is such an amazing host as well! You can tell he put a lot of thought into his space and cares for it really well. He’s also a real chill down to earth kinda guy !

Amazing experience all around! The space is everything that is listed and more! A huge space that offers SO many possibilities for creativity and more. We used the space to shoot photos and honestly want to rent the space again, because there are so many other things we'd like to do in the space. Vibes, energy and tons of feels in this space. Rugged textures (brick, wood, etc, multiple pieces of furniture to play with, plants, SO many possibilities for lighting.) Dylan is an awesome host, who is willing to help in any way possible to make your experience fantastic. Can't recommend enough.....Thank you again Dylan!!


February 2020

Stunning space, the studio is well stacked with everything and anything you could need to help get your creative juices flowing. I'm definitely planning on shooting in this space multiple times!


February 2020

The venue was clean, bright, and exactly as it looked in the pictures. The equipment was easy to use and the space has so many cool areas to shoot it. Definitely going to be coming back!

Dylan's space was perfect for our valentines market event! It fit all the vendors nicely and had a great feel. The space is bright during the day and the plants add a lovely touch. Dylan was great to work with and very accommodating with our needs, and also lent a helping hand during the event to help us arrange everything as we desired and did his best to make sure we had a great time. I would highly recommend this space to anyone :)
