The second iteration for this residence in Little Italy presents an entirely new, more demure contemporary duplex to stand alongside the neighbourhood's 1920s brick housing and industrial buildings. The small size of the project and its simple form respect its minimal budget. Choice of materials, articulation, proportion, and composition ensure that the house simultaneously fits in and stands out. Once again capitalizing on the client's love for the neighbourhood and her desire for light, maximized floor to ceiling openings and an open plan create an unusually intimate connection with the surrounding context.
