Mimico Creek Residence

Design & Programming

Massing Back copy

Located on the top of a large site overlooking Mimico Creek, this 3 storey family dwelling features a central corridor and stairway that connects the interior spaces as well as the exterior views to the creek and ravine. Programmatically the corridor separates the utility spaces, garage and mudroom, from the main living spaces. Open riser stairs and wooden screens allow for dynamic views in out and of the house. The main plan begins at the street side with a private dining room, open kitchen and lowered living room with floor to ceiling south facing glass and patio access. The patio has a retractable rain screen, sun shading, and connects to a BBQ area off the kitchen. The basement offers storage, guest room, gym, and recreation room. The upper floor includes 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with the master suite taking full advantage of the elevated views to the creek.
