The Mid-Town Triplex is an example of urban intensification in an established Toronto neighborhood, providing the Clients with both a principle residence and high value income suites that add to the quality and variety of rental options in the city. The triplex comprises a basement 1-bedroom unit, a ground floor two-bedroom unit, and a 2300sf, two-storey, 3-bedroom unit for the homeowners. The existing two-storey, brick structure is one of many similar houses in the neighborhood, with a pitched roof and raised front porch with steps. Sensitivity to surrounding context is a key consideration in the design – existing brick is reused and restored while articulating the additions and incisions in the façade with clean, rectangular volumes. This juxtaposition clearly highlights new from old while maintaining the cadence of the streetscape. At the ground level, a canopy integrates the separate entries to each unit, creating a singular address for the house. The Clients believe that the good design and quality finishes specified by the architect resulted in higher value – confirmed upon the quick rental of the rental suites above market appraisal.
