Wilde 2015 STUDIO: TORONTO

A live/work space for a writer and florist couple in Kensington Market. Sandwiched between other row houses, small windows and long skylights provide natural light while maintaining privacy from busy streets. A rear porch entrance provides garden views as well as a threshold between the back street for privacy. Open-riser stairs filtering light down through all levels of the home. Lofty double-height moments are carved out throughout the house. Bookshelves for the writer’s extensive book collection wrap the interior, transmuting at times into kitchen shelves, product display shelves, and stepped seating for reading.
