DIALOG Toronto Studio

A new purpose for an iconic Canadian space

Office & Workplace

Our Toronto studio is a testament to form following function, designing our space for how we like to work. Located in the iconic CBC Broadcast Centre, the former production studio’s soaring ceilings and vast floor area offered unimpeded opportunities to our design team. The new studio accommodates both collaborative and private work, providing DIALOGers with a space that enables creativity and innovation. These diverse spaces are categorized under five distinct zones: meet, well, make, share, and work, each tailored to optimize our team’s potential and wellbeing.
