Millbank Residence

Toronto, Ontario

The private residence includes primary living spaces, three bedrooms, master bedroom and ensuite, a library / study and multi-car garage.

Originally the site was comprised of an existing mid-1950s two-storey pitched roof house, deeply set against a ravine to the rear. Rather than demolish the existing house, it was preserved and a new "front house" was constructed adjacent to it. The design provides a series of conceptual 'light drawers' that are intentionally pulled up and out to capture daylight and distant views through strategically placed openings.
