Located in Toronto, this house was designed and built to sell by Riego & Bauer. The objective was to offer buyers a newly contructed house with a contemporary design at a competitive price.
The design for this small two-bedroom house fits into the neighbourhood while still being contemporary. With an exciting and approachable design the house relates to the tightly packed cottages with peaked roofs without replicating hem.
In contrast to the solid walls on both sides of the house, the front and back faces are entirely glass, in order to maximize natural light and give the modest interior spaces the impression of being larger than they are.
