Altius Architecture Inc. has designed this 3 bedroom single family residence, the 360 Winnette House in Toronto, Canada.
The house brings in natural light, casting dramatic shadows, marking the passage of time during the day whilst acting as a ‘lantern’ at night. When viewed from the street, the living room is projected forwards, while the adjoining bedrooms frame the interior stair core from behind.
Generously high ceilings keep the hot summer sun out of the home, while allowing winter sun in. A light-well also serves to provide natural stack ventilation, permitting interior air to be exhausted at the clerestorey level above.
