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.”
