The Story

It can be challenging enough to build a modern home in a traditional context, but remodeling a conventional house with a contemporary approach can be even more difficult. Done well, however, it can produce a potentially more dynamic and impressive combined construction than either a traditional or modern house design. In this renovation and interior remodeling project, elements of the original structure were integrated in creative ways with the addition of more space; the addition at the rear.

Through contrast, the division of the old and new design elements in this Toronto home are rendered evident from every angle, both inside and out. With different rhythms of solid and void, flat and angled, and slick and textured, this renovation makes for interesting collision of styles while still being contextual to its surroundings.
