about footprint

At Footprint, we are obsessed with space saving design. Living in the Greater Toronto Area the team has seen firsthand how rising real estate prices, a booming condo market, and a consumer desire to “live more with less” is impacting the way we look and feel about the spaces where we live, work, and rest. 

Footprint — design that transforms — provides custom, eco-friendly, space-saving solutions for people looking to reduce their footprint and not compromise anything in the process.

boost your use

With the current cost of real estate in Toronto hovering around $1000 / sq. ft., the decision to occupy a smaller footprint means a smaller mortgage, lower taxes, and reduced utility bills. It also provides the opportunity to make your space your own — a space that quickly and easily transforms to fit the needs of you and your family. 

In recent years, the way we use our living space has changed dramatically. Many families no longer require the use of a formal dining room, or they find that a dedicated guest room is needed only 4 times a year. With creative design, however, it is possible for each room to transform and perform multiple functions (i.e. a craft room becomes a guest room, a master bedroom transforms into a home office during the day). This creativity and flexibility can yield significant savings while also allowing us to reduce our footprint.
