Entry Description

Streets are the arteries of our cities. Our approach for a commercial re-development in the heart of Toronto questions what street retail in the twenty-first century could be, more specifically, in dense, mixed-use urban neighbourhoods. Acting on the public realm by adding public spaces to the city, the proposal merges civic and commercial life. Taking cues from the neighbourhood’s rich fabric and history, a diagonal mews cuts through the site, restoring a lost connection and expanding on the existing network of Victoria-era pedestrian laneways.
