Building on a relationship providing residential design and permit approvals for single-family homes, we modified a 2 storey concept to take advantage of local zoning by-laws. Where by-laws can be updated on any individual street at any point in time, we were one of the last few homes in the area to be approved for 3 storey single-family dwellings. A variation of the concept "Standard A" demonstrates unwittingly, the principles of Critical Regionalism through community-influenced design. Whiles respecting the aesthetics of the neighbourhood, front-facing balconies invite conversation and familiarity with community members. The project was such a success, we were able to duplicate the existing design accommodating development on the adjacent property.
