Teeple Architects’ award-winning 60 Richmond Street East provides innovative, affordable housing just east of TORONTO’s Financial District. An infill project, the building uses reclaimed materials and energy-saving strategies to keep maintenance costs down. It also features a resident-owned and operated restaurant and training kitchen on the ground floor.
Vegetables, fruit and herbs grown on the sixth floor terrace help supply the restaurant with food. The cut-in facade adds spark to a rather bland neighbourhood.
