BMX Supercross Legacy Project in Toronto, Canada by Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz Architects Inc.

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Article source: Kleinfeldt Mychajlowycz Architects Inc.

The BMX Supercross Legacy Project is difficult to categorize. It is a structure within a park that accommodates the park’s storage needs, two permanent Start Ramps for BMX Supercross events, one at 10 meters and the other at 5 meters high, a permanent, concrete and steel screened structure and a 517 meter, ephemeral dirt track. It is a board formed retaining wall of over 27 meters length and ranging in height from 0.5 to 6 meters high. It is an object in a landscape and a landscape in its own right.

SHAFT HOUSE in Toronto, Canada by rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Article source: rzlbd [Reza Aliabadi]

Introduction

“Design belongs to everyone.” Says Reza Aliabadi, the architect of “Shaft House”.

The Shaft House idea was derived from the architect’s concerns about the affordability of design.  Walking down on Danforth and Woodbine avenues in Toronto, an affordable neighborhood with not too many different building types one might not expect to see a contemporary building in the area let alone a contemporary house. “This neighborhood is full of houses that look all the same. People think it is expensive to own designs. But Toronto deserves to have more of these” says the architect while pointing out to a house in Lumsden Avenue that looks fairly surreal comparing to the surroundings. Traditional modeled dwellings with their brick façades are allowing rusted steel and untreated wood panels, mysteriously covering two small windows, to be an unexpected exciting discovery in their neighborhood.

The project is located on the southern edge of Lansing, which is a small neighbourhood in the North York municipality in the Greater Toronto Area. Thorax House is a minimalist two-storey wood structure that carefully responds to the needs and lifestyle of the client whileit has not forgotten the basic logic, plan and simplicity of the bungalow it replaced: the new project sits exactly on the small foot-print of the one-and-a-half storey bungalow that had occupied the site.

Counterpoint House in Toronto, Canada by Paul Raff Studio Architects

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

Article source: Paul Raff Studio Architects

Situated on a narrow lot in a leafy neighborhood, Counterpoint House is a lofty, light-filled home for a family of four.

After immigrating to Toronto from Europe, the family searched extensively, but could not find a house they wanted to live in.

They then engaged the architect Paul Raff, and discussed their wish list: open, interconnected living spaces with a strong sense of connection to the garden, trees, and sky. The clients wanted a home that would seamlessly enhance a family’s experience of working, studying, playing music, cooking and dining together.

House 60 in Toronto, Canada by gh3

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Article source: gh3

House 60 is a renovation and addition to a 50’s suburban house on a large lot in Toronto, Canada.

The existing house was largely introverted—small windows, low ceilings—with a traditional plan—living room, separate dining room and cramped kitchen on the ground floor, and a maze of bedrooms on the second. An undistinguished building from the exterior—brick with a shallow sloping roof—adorned over time with a wrought iron front porch and aluminum awnings. However underwhelming, the existing house was considered by gh3 as a material resource to be reused, rather than abandoned, a position consistent with first principles of sustainability.
