83a MARLBOROUGH AVENUE

COMPLETED: 2002



This single family residential infill project in mid-town Toronto occupies a 13' x 115' lot that was a former CN Rail site with a single car garage. The project is largely determined by its constraints. The form of the building is based on the requirements for access to light and one's movement through the space. Circulation spirals up and over the entrance through a series of interconnected spaces that are maximized with natural light that enters from above.

In response to the requirements of the client, the program of this slender house forges a connection to the site, sky, and the neighborhood, while realizing the potential of an underused lot.
