Project Description

CC House

Modern Home Extension in Toronto, Ontario

Can an extension change the character of a home?

This Toronto home extension rejuvenates an existing dwelling that was no longer functional and responsive to the needs of it’s owners. With a rear-end extension, this house gained a new life, transforming the character of the overall building and connectivity to the backyard garden.

Project Year: 2019
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Client: Confidential
Status: In Progress

Design: ERS Design

Structural: Honeycomb Engineering

As part of the home extension, there is a new kitchen and powder room on the ground floor. The second floor extension includes a new master bedroom and en-suite. In order to achieve higher ceilings the kitchen floor is lower in relationship with the existing ground floor. The floor to ceiling glass partition reinforce the connection to the exterior, giving the impression that the interior space extends towards the exterior deck.

The interior renovation includes a refresh to the basement area, re-purposing it into a workshop & art studio. On the main level, the living room will have a new fireplace, custom shelving and a mono-beam feature stair with glass railings. The mater bedroom will have a private balcony and a clerestory window visible from the sleeping area. The wood structure of the roof will be exposed and highlighted as a design element.

The facade material selection uses brick masonry to match the exiting tone and copper panels. The copper panels will change and develop a patina due to the materials natural oxidation, transforming the facade into a living, ever-evolving feature.
