For this rooftop addition to an existing small house in an up and coming neighbourhood in Little Italy we sought to reconcile the client's love for the neighbourhood, for light, and for open spaces with the existing condition. Given the heterogeneous character of the area we thought contrast was the way to go – preserve the little brick house and add a modern layer. Citing lack of contextual integration the city rejected the project. We went back to the drawing boards.
