Located at the west end of downtown Toronto, this 180-year old house is the home for a young couple both working in the arts.  An addition is added to the existing building.  A 7m x 5m window opens the view of the living room and extends its space to the back garden. Different parts of the existing load bearing brick wall are preserved, juxtaposed with pure white modernist lines. Since both owners work at home, the atmosphere is deliberately kept as minimal and serene as possible.
