Emerging UK firms DM_Studio and WMB Studio have completed their £8,000 ‘winter stations’ on Toronto’s beaches
Their ‘Driftwood Throne’ and ‘Sling Swing’ designs were among five competition-winning schemes chosen to be built in The Beaches district of the Ontario capital.
The contest – open to artists, designers, architects and landscape architects – sought proposals for temporary structures ‘able to withstand the rigours of Toronto winter weather’.
The other winners were New Hampshire-based Tim Olson; Michaela MacLeod and Nicholas Croft from Toronto; and Diana Koncan and Lily Jeon from Ryerson University’s Department of Architectural Science.
London-based DM_Studio was set up by Daniel Madeiros in 2012.
Daniel Wiltshire, Frances McGeown and Ed Butler meanwhile launched WMB studio in London and Liverpool around two years ago.
The five completed winning designs will feature on the Kew, Scarborough and Balmy beaches within The Beaches district of the Ontario capital until the end of March.
