Station Home, located in mid town Burlington Ontario, is a lifestyle, home decor and design store aimed at urbanites and their busy evolving lives. Station is a hub where people come and go, from within the city and all over the world. Station is a source of supply and outfitting for the way people dwell and it’s a connection point to find inspiration, like minded people, style guidance, decor and creature comforts for wherever one calls home.
Station Home is a concept and design collaboration between Centro Garden and Holland Park Garden Gallery. Following the visibly groundbreaking success of Centro Garden, Holland Park Garden Gallery, one of Canada’s most successful garden lifestyle retailers asked Centro’s founder Jason Pepetone to re-imagine their garden centre and create and expansion concept store.
Jason invited Insite to assist since we were part of the thinking and design behind the original Centro Garden and have maintained a keen interest in the evolution of the category and retail in general.
What was concluded was to create a home & garden lifestyle store that was cross pollinated with the evolution of Centro.
Situated within an old industrial warehouse, Station was designed to take over and luxe-up the space while not losing the raw spontaneous warehouse appeal.
The environment leverages an industrial metaphor as well as the grande nature of a transit hub while marrying the softer comforts and surfaces of urban loft living.
Custom details, surfaces and fixtures were designed and fabricated locally in addition to sourcing and restoring vintage industrial equipment to utilize as displays.
A complete retail package was also designed to compliment the feel of the store while creating a tonal contrast that further softens the industrial backdrop.
You can find the store at 2243 Fairview Street in Burlington — between Holland Park and Nicklebrook Brewing.
