Located at 75 Markham Street in Toronto – and originally housing the Oxford Picture Frame Company – the Oxford Lofts inhabit a late-1920s industrial artifact that was converted in 1986 into 16 multi-level loft, retaining many of the original heavy timber and brick details from its previous use. Converted by Bob Mitchell as one of the early group of loft conversions in Toronto, only 4 years after his first project at 41 Shanly. Mitchell added a third story to the Oxford Lofts, raising the existing parapet with salvaged brick, and then carved out underground parking for 19 cars. Every unit is different. The top units are all skylit, although the skylights can appear over a living room, a bathroom, a kitchen. All of the lofts have at least two levels, with some rising to three. Some of the lofts walk out onto roof terraces. Others open onto patios. Each unit has a fireplace and everywhere you look, you see eccentric things like cupboards tucked under staircases, niches, even exposed ductwork and metal trusses.
