63b modern-exterior
 

63b

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:

This three-story house in Toronto, by nkArchitects, takes advantage of its corner lot through large windows overlooking the streets. The front door is integrated into the first floor's horizontal expanse of glass; a cutout on the short side signals the front door.
