The final form of this modern house was derived through playful experimenting with extruding solids and voids. Built on a narrow lot which has access from the rear from the flanking street, this house was designed to meet the by-law requirements without the need to go through Committee of Adjustments minor variance application process.
The house features an atrium space that runs parallel to the stairs and brings in more natural light through the windows at the top. Although built on a narrow lot, the depth of the house allows all the accommodations of a bigger house. The ground floor contains a large dining room, an office and a combined space for a kitchen and family room. Through large sliding doors the family room can be opened into an exterior stone patio which has its own gas fireplace. The second floor holds not only a master bedroom and master ensuite, but also two more bedrooms each with its own private bathrooms.
