63b modern-exterior


Situated within Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood, 63b is a new private residence distributed over three floors of living space and a detached garage. Dealing with the constraints of a long and narrow corner site, the urban response takes its cues from the established figure-ground, aligning itself with neighbouring dwellings at the front elevation and maintaining the flanking street setback of the original house. Configuring the vertical circulation as a continuous interconnected 3-storey volume to maximize natural lighting and induced ventilation, employing hydronic radiant floor heating and green roof technology, the architecture begins to re-establish a more symbiotic relationship between house and natural environment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The front door is recessed into the rectangular block of the brick house, sheltering residents and visitors before they go inside. The location of the simple house numbering also makes the entry clear.
