It’s hard to believe, but this apartment in midtown Toronto’s recently retrofitted Imperial Plaza was once an unremarkable, white-walled office space. Its only saving graces were spectacular city views, 12-foot-high ceilings and the whiff of Mad Men-era glamor that still clings to the fabled 23-storey former headquarters of Imperial Oil, built in 1957.

“It was just a white box,” says Toronto interior designer–architect Dee Dee Taylor Hannah (right), seated on an extra-long sofa in the great room of the luxurious 4,500-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment she designed. She worked alongside her daughter, Rachael Taylor Hannah (left) of TH Curation, a Gen Z–driven capsule collection of luxury home products, ranging from bedding to towels to tableware and lighting.

Far from being intimidated by starting with such a blank slate, the pair was exhilarated by the challenge of transforming the apartment from bland to grand for a client with an appreciation for entertaining friends and family. That kind of transformation takes time. The space, which had been turned into a four-bedroom condo years before, had to be completely gutted then revamped, a process that started in 2019 and finished in 2021.
