Located on a small lot in Downtown Toronto, the owners of this new three storey residence desired a peaceful urban retreat, purposefully tailored to nurture and enhance a close communal family life and their enjoyment of the outdoors. The response is a highly personalized expression of one small family’s particular lifestyle.
A small rustic cabin on a rugged lakefront site in Muskoka, Little Dipper has a single goal in mind: to transport visitors into an immersive and visceral experience of wilderness landscape; wind and water; and the ever changing sky.
This new residence for an extended family is situated on a typical suburban street in central Etobicoke. At once a nice neighbor and a quiet nonconformist, the design fits gently into the streetscape but also stands firmly apart, subtly challenging the conventions typically associated with suburban single-family homes.
