Diverse Character Multi Use Studio
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...

Any rules and regulations are shared transparently with every individual client booking, to make sure their needs are mutually considered for optimization!
Dylan is a wonderful host and exceeds expectations! the space is beautiful and quite versatile for any type of event. Each room has character without feeling displaced as a whole.
Dylan was very easy to work with, took our ideas for our event and helps us make it a success!! Really appreciative of host participating with their clients ideas!!
Quick to respond and great with getting back any information needed
I don’t even think words or pictures will do this place justice. It was the absolute perfect venue for our event. Dylan was so accommodating, and very easy to get in contact with about any questions I had. The best experience!
This space was so great for me and my team! We shot a music video and could not have had a better experience! Everything was perfect!
We had a fantastic time shooting at Diptych Studios. The booking staff was incredibly professional and made coordination very easy. The space looks exactly like it does in the photos, and was easy to navigate and load into. I'd highly recommend Diptych Studios to other productions looking for a space to shoot in.
Working with Dylan was great, he is super helpful, very opened and accessible.
The space worked perfectly for a shoot. Great lighting options, and very accommodating staff! Definitely going to book this space more often :)
Diverse Character was very accommodating during our video shoot. Gave a helping hand at any given time and even when their staff had to step out, i was asked if i would need assistance or where i could find them if I need them for any reason. Very easy to work with and a very understanding establishment of the creative process. Communication allowed us to explore ideas that weren't intially a thought process and definitely added to the visuals.
