Euclid Avenue House

Location: Toronto, Ontario
Type: Renovation
Size: 2,800 sf

A newly constructed, modestly scaled home accommodates a variety of configurations and living situations allowing a family to evolve from life with teenagers to a rental apartment.


In every season, the house’s planted roofs positively impact the house’s temperature, air quality and daily experiences while rendering the house’s built-footprint to zero.
