Modern Peaceful Harmony
Sherway Gardens has been one of Toronto’s premier shopping destinations for decades. It was named “Sherway Gardens” after the mall’s construction in 1973 because of its gardens that are strategically located throughout the mall.
Fast forward to today, the mall is in the process of undergoing a a major revitalization to enhance the overall shopping experience that their discerning shopper’s expect.
An important part to this historic renovation was to revitalize the lush gardens. The interior gardens have been an extremely important piece of the mall’s rich history and allure. The goal was to carry on that heritage by bringing them into the modern era with a fresh design.
Sherway Gardens reached out to the Ambius Toronto team and Ambius Project Manager of Retail Design & Construction, Yuko Frazier, for assistance with this project.
This vision of the “Modern Peaceful Harmony” design had to be unique and set the mall apart from all other shopping locales in the area. The gardens’ design needed to be modern with clean lines and coexist with the existing planter beds and surrounding architecture. Last but not least, the gardens needed to have the capabilities to be used for marketing, local art and culture displays.
