Toronto-based studio Altius Architecture has completed the North Kingsway Residence renovation project in 2010.
Located in Etobicoke, a dissolved municipality located within the current city of Toronto, Canada, this post-war 1,600 square foot single family house was completely remodeled, and a 750 square foot addition was added to the rear of the existing building to house the kitchen and the master bedroom in the upper floor.

Altius Architecture has completed the Winnett House project, a new three bedroom residence on a challenging urban site.
This 2,370 square foot single family home is located in Toronto, Canada.
“The 24 foot centrally located double height volume brings in natural light, casting dramatic shadows, marking the passage of time during the day whilst acting as a “lantern” at night.”
Studio Altius Architecture has completed the Ellis Park House project, a sigle-family house located in the Bloor West Village neighborhood of Toronto, Canada.
according to the architects, this contemporary residence was conceived as an “ecological urban home that places a bold emphasis on sustainability and contemporary living.
The home was constructed on an overgrown infill site, just steps from Bloor Street, that was considered unbuildable because of its 45 slope and shallow depth.
Where others saw obstacles the design team saw potential for an earth sheltered home, ideally sited in an urban context with good solar orientation and exceptional vistas over Toronto’s High Park.”
