objects + spaces is a custom design/build firm operating in Toronto and southern Ontario.

Marc van Ginkel, principal, has been working in the field of architecture, construction and fine cabinetry for over twenty years. After graduating from the University of Toronto in 1988 with a bachelor of architecture, Marc worked at the firm of Strasman Architects for several years before moving on to develop his own projects with residential and commercial clients.

objects + spaces currently offers a diverse array of services ranging from design and detailing to construction, renovation, cabinetry and custom furniture fabrication.

The concept is simple. The services offered are custom tailored to the client in the same way our built product is. With the integration of the design/build, clients are assured that the design reflects the realities of the building process, and the building process will in turn inform the design integration.

The design process is intensive. The primary task is to fully understand the needs and desires of the client and subsequently develop a programme which accurately reflects the clients requirements. The style of objects + spaces is distinctive, but in the end, the product is about the client and not the designer.

One of the core values of objects + spaces is the notion of collaboration. Whether it be with the client, other designers, architects, contractors, fabricators or suppliers, our goal is to achieve the best product for the client. The capabilities of design/build will not limit us from engaging in only one or the other.

In the past several years, object + spaces has worked on projects as varied as furniture fabrication for the Ontario Government and other commercial clients designed by various architects, to the design of millwork for a $1.5 million residential renovations. While the bulk of our work has been in interior design, space planning, kitchen, bathroom and basement renovation, our specialties include furniture design and millwork fabrication in homes and commercial buildings. Our team includes building trades and craftsmen in wood, stone, metal capable of creating custom installations from fireplaces &reception desks, , to complete home environmrnts.

We look forward to hearing from you, Marc van Ginkel.
