Architecture Design of Twosome House
Description About The Project
Twosome House designed by Atelier RZLBD is a stunning project, located in Toronto, Canada for 5-member family. This organization of “public/ private” & “servant/ served” spaces establishes a clear sense of order throughout the home. The first of the project’s dividing lines runs North to South. Also, upon approach, the structure presents as two distinct volumes: a stuccoed rectangular western block, and a square-shaped eastern wing clad in stone veneer. This two-part configuration separates family – oriented areas (kept to the West) from open spaces meant for hosting guests (which dominate the Eastern side).
In addition to this, on the ground floor, that translates into an intimate kitchen and family room tucked into the more narrow Western corridor. And, in the square – shaped wing, a flexible living room that feels appropriately stately in scale. A slightly recessed two – metre – wide passageway acts as a point of reference between these halves, and serves as the home’s main entrance.
On the other hand, a second delineating axis runs East to West throughout the Eastern portion of the home. The central focal point of this volume is a triple – height concrete wall that supports a wraparound staircase. Intended as a symbol of rigidity introduced to establish the home as a sturdy fortress, it also functions as a boundary: to one side of this wall are rooms that cater to service activities best kept out of sight, while to the other side are more flexible entertaining spaces.
