Photographer's Note

This unusual building is the headquarters and store of a company designing and selling unusual housewares, it was built in 2007. The translucent pink shade covering of the glass building is appropriate to a company whose name is Umbra (in Latin, "shade"). The company was started by a graphic designer 30 years ago, who could not buy a shade he liked for his window, so decided to make one.
The building was designed by Kohn Shnier architects, a Totonto firm with a reputation for inovative design.
