Work on this existing live-work structure in downtown Toronto involved a 200 sm square foot interior renovation and a new cladding concept for the exterior façades. This concept creates a more inviting entry that distinguishes the office entrance from the residential entrance, with an interior door that connects the owners’ Victorian house with the modern tower. The interior renovation includes updated finishes, colours, and a revamped kitchen and interior details.

For the exterior façade, a new palette of warmer, tactile materials was used including a light-coloured skin, metal window accents and cedar cladding – each working together to lighten the overall massing of the upper portion of the building while providing a new natural base and connection to the heritage house.

The original addition was built by Ferguson Ferguson in the 90s, with PLANT partner Chris Pommer working as one of the team’s members.
