In collaboration with DSBG, KOHN SHNIER Architects has been completed a project of a wholesale re-imagination of an existing 1980’s side-split. This project turns the existing building into a new single-family home for healthy, inspired multi-generational living in Toronto. Besides the transformation of Wrap House, the scope of this project also includes a complete interior renovation.
The main scope of this residential project is to create a transformational living and working environment by adding existing structure through a complete interior renovation and a modest street-facing addition. This way can improve the property’s functional and experiential qualities.
With such overall treatment, this new house remains an example of formal restraint and a modest neighbor, declaring itself to be contemporary distinctly. This can provide an alternate approach to the neighborhood trend of demolishing existing residences and also replacing them with oversized generic houses. This new house also becomes a playful place that will never get old for a family with all of its features.
The interior of this modern house is dominated in white, especially on its walls and ceiling. Some wooden accents can be found on the floors of some rooms, including the staircase. The combination of different materials and neutral colors make this house elegant and beautiful with a bright atmosphere.
