Description from the designer:
Responding to the constraints of its immediate context, the Relmar Houses are a unique and modern complex, where a geometric and weighty masonry exterior shell is fractured to reveal two strikingly bright and modern interiors, each augmented by its own three storey atrium.
Description from the listing agent
The Relmar houses are 3 story homes, located in Toronto’s Forest Hill neighbourhood. Located just north of the city’s downtown core, Forest Hill is known more for large estate homes, and traditional architecture.
These semi-detached homes are located in a highly-coveted neighbourhood, but offer a rare opportunity to inhabit a newly-built contemporary residence.
The home celebrates modern living, with open expanses and long vistas in the public spaces, paired with more modest and comfortable volumes in private rooms.
It’s a home equally well suited to lavish entertaining, as it is quiet evenings with the family. A home that reflects the architect’s vision for distinctive design and a commitment by the builder to meet the very highest achievements in construction.
The home’s modest footprint speaks to the builder’s desire to maximize the quality of living space, rather than the sheer quantity of square footage.
This efficacy of space is also coupled with a commitment to building green, which is reflected in the home’s triple pane windows, passive cooling through the skylight atrium and planted green roofs on both the main residence and the garage beyond.
