Snuggled amongst 19th century brick dwellings in downtown TORONTO sits ‘the contrast house’. A small semi-detached home with Victorian-era room layouts, it’s been transformed into a brightly lit, contemporary living space.
The long, narrow structure, only 11 feet wide, has been opened up on all levels to bring in natural light. A small green roof provides a cooling effect for the upper floors and absorbs rainwater, preventing run-off.
Dubbeldam Architecture and Design was named one of TORONTO’s best architecture firms by Toronto Life in 2014. The company also won a commission to redesign the historic Walper Hotel <photo below> in KITCHENER, Ontario.
