401 Richmond St in Toronto was at one time a lithography factory, but is now used as a home for more than 140 artists, galleries and shops. The original character and features of this heritage designated building have been retained while adding more modern elements to make it comfortable. There was a wealth of doors and windows of which here is one example. To the right is a a glass enclosed walkway through the interior courtyard.

  1. It looks like a very beautiful, interesting building. Even the outside area looks inviting.

  2. The wood adds so much more to the beauty of a home.

  3. Absolutely beautiful – what rich colors and textures! Amazing!

  4. The eclectic styles off doors do give this artists’ enclave an artistic feel. The tenants create art in many different ways so that the building style being so different is an advantage for creativity…I like the idea of an interior courtyard, just the place for soliciting ideas for art…

  5. I love that building!

  6. That sounds like a wonderful place to spend some time browsing! I love the shape of that old door and the weathered looking wood.

  7. Beautiful patina on that old floor, one can imagine the ware of many feet.

  8. Wonderful photo, lovely door.
