Ancerl Studio have been shortlisted for Living Space – Canada Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2020.
Located only steps away from the lively restaurants and eclectic shops of Toronto’s sought-after Little Italy, Ancerl Studio’s Euclid 633 Residence is a prime example of cityscape, and of neighbourhood preservation through the understated transformation of a modest dwelling into a one-of-a-kind luxury home.
With great control of the residence’s flow and through the creation of awe-inspiring open volumes, Ancerl Studio fully engages the guests and residents as they explore the dynamically planned property and uncover its quietly sophisticated contemporary details. In a marriage of authentic textures and forms, the home boasts renovated original brick walls, reclaimed and customised architectural beams, and industrial window frames representing a new generation of urban dwellings.
Subtly nostalgic in its emotive materiality yet modern in its contemporary programming and unexpected flow, Euclid 633 Residence truly is a journey of discovery defined by its warm sense of arrival and through Ancerl Studio’s subtle juxtaposition of contrasting materials in storytelling combinations. With ceilings of up to 20 feet and multiple expansive floor-to-ceiling walls of windows, the home continually connects its inhabitants to the outside – most notably the home’s lush rear garden providing a yearlong indoor-to-outdoor experience.
The kitchen incorporates a beautiful marble on the countertop, backsplash, and range hood, for a dramatic statement complementing the soaring windows that flank it. The wonderfully open space and double height windows lets in an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is truly the heart of this home, perfectly set for entertaining. A pantry tucked off of the main kitchen ensures practicality and function.
The home was minimally renovated on the exterior, and though updated, it’s original character remains. Euclid 633 Residence preserves Canadian urban heritage merging historical features with touches of industrialism in a relevant statement of modernity.
