Berkeley Live/Work Residence in Toronto, Canada by PLANT Architect Inc.

PLANT’s work on this existing live/work structure in downtown Toronto involved a 2,000 square-foot interior renovation and a new cladding concept for the exterior facades. This concept creates a more inviting entrance that serves to distinguish the office entrance from the residential entrance. Using a new palette of materials, the light-coloured building skin, metal window accents, and cedar cladding lighten the overall massing of the building’s upper portion. In contrast, warmer, tactile materials were used at the entry points off the street.
