NY 之家,加拿大, Urbanscape Architects

纽约之家 “是为一个四口之家设计的,是对多伦多市中心一栋中等规模的三层楼房进行大规模翻新的结果。新房子参考了主人以前在纽约的生活,容纳了他们目前的工作和生活,这两位活跃的专业人士和他们年幼的孩子。作为一个综合性的住宅,它定制了灵活的、多用途的空间,适合于一个不断增长的家庭。主要的是,设计策略响应了业主对自然光、空气和景观渗透到生活空间的需求。

Designed for a family of four, the NY House, is the result of an extensive renovation of a mid-size, three-storey house in midtown Toronto. The new house references the former life of its owners in New York city, accommodating their current work and life of these two active professionals and their young children. A comprehensive home, it is customized with flexible, multi-purpose spaces fit for a growing family. Mainly, the design strategy responds to the owners’ need for the penetration of natural light, air and views into their living space.


The design strategy was achieved through architectural gestures. Firstly, the dated interior partitions were removed to create a memorable and welcoming home—characterized by its intimate relationship with its immediate landscape and context. And subsequently, a customized skylight was positioned meticulously to be visible from every point on the first, second and third floors.


Elegantly detailed millwork in aok along with white, double-cross engineered hardwood floor unified the interior of the house with a large cedar garden pavilion. The choice of dark window frames added a striking contrast to the matte white interior walls as well as the exterior facade, complementing the existing red brick of the cladding. The result is a comprehensive home with a distinguished presence and flexible, multi-purpose spaces fit for a growing family.
