Downtown Toronto location and narrow but long lot size prompted the form of this two and half storey modern dwelling. The modern style and planning features ultimately set this house apart with contrasting materials, reflective full height glazing and extending canopies. Living areas are organized by level differences and wood clad partitions inside the first storey, which also allows for the ground floor garage and walk out basement at the rear. The 2,510 square feet house is split between living/dining rooms and family room/kitchen on first storey, and includes four bedrooms on second storey each with ensuite bathrooms and three walk out balconies.
For this project we wanted to see how the house would play out in the neighbourhood in terms of scale, materials and forms, thus we created few realistic renderings of the exterior front and back in several angles. We changed the materials on the exterior a few times to find the best composition and style. We also experimented with the living areas with realistic interior renderings with custom modelled modern furniture and lighting.
