11 Barfield Ave By Linebox Studio
East York Modern Home.
Andrew Reeves of Linebox Studio Inc. was challenged to design this modern Toronto home in East York with efficiency and affordability as core principles for the project. Built on the existing foundation of a war era home on an infill lot we find a contemporary design that allows natural light to flow throughout the open concept space.
The client, a small, modern Toronto-based residential developer, challenged us to use design as a means to maximize the efficiency and affordability of the project while providing a progressive and technically strong home that superseded building codes and local construction standards. We were able to successfully re-evaluate all construction costs including: labour, building size/square footage and materials to deliver a home that met the Developer’s stringent costs restraints and design demands. Built on an existing foundation left over from the demolished home, Linebox designed the home to be sensitive to the scale of the neighbouring war-time homes. Located at 11 Barfield ave. this design itself promotes modern living through large, open and simple geometric spaces. An interior garden and a large operable skylight brings light into the core of the home.
