TORONTO ARCHITECTS, DUBBELDAM, CONVERT A VICTORIAN TERRACE INTO A MODERN BEAUTY

DUBBELDAM4 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.

DUBBELDAM3The 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.
