Avonhurst is a 2,000 square foot home on a large, scenic lot in Etobicoke with four yards. Specific interior walls, foundation walls, and basement spaces were preserved, and a new master addition was added to the south of the home.
V+A created a sense of enclosure on the site, while providing diagonal views through the site to expose landscape elements. Site lines between the entrance, through the dining room, and out to the lush backyard were preserved. The relationship between interior and exterior was further highlighted through fenestration openings; windows and doors strategically placed throughout the home.
Materials were used in their natural state where possible. IPE (ironwood) was used both inside and outside the home to showcase a consistent character and material palette throughout.
