Toronto-Modern Row House Design

Our example of a contemporary rowhouse design tailored for our clients in Toronto, Canada. Emphasizing modern living within a compact space, the design accounts for the inherent challenges associated with small-scale row houses. In many instances, extensive renovation work is required to ensure that the home meets the specific requirements of its owners. In some cases, complete demolition may be necessary, particularly when structural integrity has been compromised due to issues such as rot or damaged materials.

In such instances, we exert diligent effort to conceptualize a rowhouse that would harmonize with its surroundings or aptly adhere to the established architectural guidelines of the area.

Primary Design Features

The primary objective of the new rowhouse design was to position the master suite in close proximity to the rear yard patio, ensuring effortless access during the warmer months of the year. Furthermore, the intention was to enable the owners to relish their rear patio and yard without the need to ascend a flight of stairs to their master suite. The main floor encompasses the garage, entry hall, and a storage closet as well.
