  • Location: Toronto
  • Architect: Gow Hastings
  • Industry: Education

Université de l'Ontario français (UoF) is Ontario's first French-language university. Located in downtown Toronto by St Lawrence Market, connected to the iconic Artscape Daniels Building, the University occupies the entire second floor. With a shortage of French-speaking learning opportunities in Ontario, this University is a much-needed gem.

"For the new Université de l’Ontario Français, we choose The Collective for our complete furniture fit up of the University. The furniture and the installation were first class and we have no regrets. The furniture received was top quality and delivered in a timely matter. I would be happy to use The Collective again." - Claude, Campus Facilities and Security Director

The Collective collaborated with the client and the Architect (Gow Hastings) from the beginning of the project, helping build the project scope from planning through execution.

The Collective furnished everything within the University, including UoF's student services center, classrooms, computer labs, research suites, collaboration areas, café, offices, and more. The Architect and client designed a light, airy environment that allowed showcasing pops of color within the furniture and wall artwork. The Teknion District solution with Navigate height adjustable tables was used for the workstations and a variety of colorful ancillary products to complement their communal areas.
