Eckler at North York Centre
Toronto • 50,000 square feet
Back in 2019, SGH Design Partners was retained by Eckler to design their new 50,000 Sq.Ft. office at Yonge and Sheppard in Toronto, Ontario. Eckler, at 92 years old, is the largest actuary company in Canada. The finished product is bright and on brand. Unique features are found throughout the space, like their Eckler logo made from calculators, providing the office with a fun and welcoming space for their team.
One of the key design objectives was to ensure natural light was available for all staff. This required all offices and enclosed spaces to be located around the building core, leaving the perimeter open.
New workstations were provided with low panels allowing natural light and uninterrupted sightlines throughout the office. An interconnected staircase attached the two floors for this space, which hosted a unique lighting feature.
