Carlton Street

This is a historic Cabbagetown brick row house that has undergone a complete gut and renovation, including the removal of an existing rear addition and deck, the opening up of the South elevation to sun and views with a contemporary glazed screen, and the relandscaping of both front and back yards. The new three storey home is 2,195 square feet, with a finished basement. Specific features include:

  1. a central stair / light well, topped with an operable skylight, wrapping around a continuous, four storey high sculptural wall clad in bird's eye maple, which ties the house together and fills the core with light
  2. a flexible layout which allows for the relocation of dining and living functions on the ground floor
  3. a basement mud / storage room with an exterior entrance from the front yard, which replaces the typical need for a garage and shed
  4. three discrete bedroom suites, each with a bathroom and built-in storage
  5. a private third roof deck, with green roof planting beds
  6. an insulated envelope, with new windows and exterior doors, which surpasses Code R-value requirements, and
  7. a high efficiency furnace, with the main duct work hidden in built-in cabinetry
