SOMA STUDIO

was established in 1999 by Andrew Fee and Linda Corbett. Over the past 16 years the studio has grown to encompass SOMA PRODUCTION SERVICES - a construction / project management company which builds Andrew's residential designs and BRONZINO HANDMADE - manufacturing Linda's custom hand-knotted carpet designs.

Principal Designer Andrew Fee has over thirty-five years experience designing and building custom homes. He has a fine art degree in sculpture from York University, Toronto and did graduate work at the Slade School, University of London, UK. His early skills as a cabinetmaker with a unique sensibility for fine woodwork, carried through into liturgical commissions in the USA and Canada.


SOMA PRODUCTION SERVICES

But it wasn't long before his love for building lead him to the design and construction of residential projects. Andrew Fee leads the construction / project management team at SOMA Production Services enabling him to fully realize his designs from concept through construction while maintaining the highest quality standards.

His work is characterized by a global style that respects the origins of modernism. His ability to balance contemporary and traditional elements with ease is a great asset in both renovation and new-build design. Spaces layered with texture, enriched by craftsmanship, attention to detail and an experienced understanding of materials are the hallmarks of his work.

Design Partner, Linda Corbett has a fine art degree in painting and film from York University, Toronto, and pursued graduate study in photography at the Sir John Cass School of Art / London Metropolitain University, UK. Her early work as a freelance photographer, graphic designer and documentary filmmaker honed the design and production skills she brings to her projects at SOMA.

Linda's areas of expertise include interiors, construction management and the complexities of permit procurement. Permit Applications in the GTA may include liaison between Building Departments, Toronto Urban Forest, Toronto Ravine & Natural Feature Protection, Toronto & Region Conservation, Committee of Adjustment, Surveyors, Arborists, Structural Engineers and Architectural Technologists.


BRONZINO HANDMADE

In 2012 Linda created BRONZINO HANDMADE INC. after her first trip to Nepal to meet carpet manufacturers. There the ancient art of weaving wool and silk carpets still upholds labour-intensive, traditional hand processes - from spinning, dyeing and hand-knotting to washing and finishing.

Linda's painterly approach to the carpet design process blends digital graphics and photographic imagery. The combination of high-tech and traditional processes allows BRONZINO to offer clients the opportunity to own a custom heirloom carpet that is both a reflection of their personal style and a perfect fit for their living space.

 

SOMA's projects in CANADA and the USA have been profiled in INTERIOR DESIGN, ARICHITECTURAL DIGEST, THE GLOBE & MAIL, TORONTO LIFE, BLOGTO, HOUSE & HOME, CANADIAN INTERIORS, STYLE AT HOME and HOUZZ.
