Ding Residence

Toronto, Ontario / Residential / Completed 2016

As a student living high up in Canada’s tallest residential tower in the heart of Toronto, Dan’s parents wanted to make sure their son felt at home. The design takes advantage of the glorious panoramic views of Toronto along the curved glass facade. Storage is always in demand in Toronto condo units and this was added into custom millwork pieces highlighted by strategically placed lighting. This unit is curated with furniture to suit Dan’s daily life and with the use of custom automated blinds.

I retained Derrick to design my condominium and I regard him as a highly dedicated and enthusiastic professional. It was a pleasure working with him as he simply did an excellent job.

Since I was so pleased with his work, I referred his company to my friends Ivan and Millie who have also provided the same positive feedback. His dedication to his work and to his clients is admirable and I can see that he believes in building a strong bond between the client and designer even after the work is complete which, to me, is a very rare quality.

Derrick is patient and monitors the working process to ensure that the schedule will not be delayed. His enthusiasm, diligence, and precision in his work is a great combination and I was very happy working with him and look forward to working together again soon.
