This project is an infill house designed for a young couple seeking an escape in design and style from the area norm. Situated within one of North Toronto’s neighbourhoods, the site context includes a convential built environment in the vicinity and features the natural beauty of a limited number.
Focus on existing landscaping elements was achieved by framing the best views surrounding the house. The high ceiling and top windows in the living area guide the eye towards the sky and distracts the occupants from nearby commercial facilities without compromising privacy.
Interconnection of spaces and ease of circulation make each of the rooms feel a lot larger than the actual dimensions. Materials were selected thoughtfully to bring about elegance and optimize the comfort and happiness of the residents.
