From the architect. The Hazelton Residence 1 is an addition and full interior renovation to an existing four-storey duplex originally designed by Barton Myers, in 1983. The building was reinvented and converted into one 4,000sf 4-story single family home. Located on the tree-lined abundance of Hazelton Avenue in the Yorkville neighborhood, one of the city of Toronto’s most vibrant and historical cultural districts.

The project focuses on re-framing the domestic program around 2 large double height spaces which provide a sectional connection between the 4-stories and much need daylight into the depths of a traditional narrow and deep Toronto site.   The first of these 20 foot double height volumes is located along the rear facade connecting the lower two floors with an existing sunken terrace and a series of mature spruce trees.
