Toronto’s Authentic Hard-Loft Rental Studio!

STUDIO 311 is a sun-filled, rustic, open concept 1,300 sq. ft. space with old world charm unlike any other. It’s only minutes from downtown Toronto and accessible by driving or transit. Located in the historic Queen East neighbourhood of Toronto known as Riverside, it was once the former century-old and iconic Coleman Lamp & Stove Company Ltd factory.

The space retains its original architectural details like old wooden floors, exposed ceiling beams, and heating radiators. The bright southern and eastern window exposure makes the studio suitable for a variety of photo/video shoot projects - ranging from editorial, commercial, portrait, product, fashion, bridal, maternity, family, and even pets. If you can think of it, it’s happened here!

STUDIO 311 is more than just a unique space to create, it’s where artists collaborate on photoshoot projects, music videos, workshops, and events. Be sure to check out the Studio Features, Rental Rates, and Frequently Asked Questions sections for more info.

We look forward to seeing what magic you (and your team) can create inside STUDIO 311!

This is one of the better shooting spaces in town.

This is one of the better shooting spaces in town, without question. Lots and lots of space, tons of natural light if you want it, nice makeup facility and a very accommodating professional studio owner. Located downtown-ish, it's easy for anyone to get to.

I hold my lighting workshops there and have had a successful event every time due in large part to the facility.
