The new pavilions at East Point Park Bird Sanctuary use architecture as a means of framing one of Toronto’s most beautiful parks, while enhancing the pleasures of birding for visitors of all ages and levels of experience. Folded into angular shapes evocative of flight, sheets of laser-cut weathering steel form the pavilions for this wooded park on the Scarborough Bluffs, high above Lake Ontario. The materials palette, which also includes precast and cast-in-place concrete and galvanized grating, was chosen for durability and minimal environmental impact. The completed Phase One encompasses the Viewing Pavilion, a Bird Blind, and entry signage.

Bickford Park House in Toronto, Canada by Solares Architecture Inc.

 
May 10th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Solares Architecture Inc.

Our project, Bickford Park House, was completed only a few months ago. Our client had bought the house over 20 years ago, and over those years had over 50 residents as tenants and roommates. The house needed a ton of work – the building suffered from major structural damage to the load-bearing brickwork, sagging floors, and multiple units, which cut off the home and broke the space apart in cumbersome ways. However, our clients loved the look and feel of the Victorian semi-detached home – they were adamant on a rejuvenation of the existing building, not an entirely new home. The major renovation had to retain the same charm they had loved for years. So Solares Architecture, alongside General Contractor Jesse Hayes, got right to work.
