In 2015, we embarked on a project in Etobicoke, a neighbourhood where we had already completed several successful ventures. We saw this project as an extension of the established modern theme in the area.
This particular project presented a unique challenge. The lot had a mere 34 feet of frontage, with setbacks limiting the house's width to a narrow 23 feet. It was an opportunity to push the boundaries of design while working within these constraints. We drew inspiration from adjacent matrices, incorporating existing design principles and introducing a fresh flow to the floor plans and bedroom layouts. This project marked our embrace of the design principles of Critical Regionalism, uncovering overlaps in foundational design approaches.
Front-facing balconies were a standout feature, fostering a connection between the house and pedestrians at street level. This project was a testament to our commitment to modern hybrid of projects learned in our past innovative designs.
In our journey through the architectural landscape, this project was a pivotal moment. It showcased our ability to tackle challenges head-on and our dedication to pushing the boundaries of design while maintaining a strong connection to the neighbourhood's existing themes.
