Forest Hill 1
Forest Hill, Toronto, Ontario
Architecture: Matthew Sapera Fine Homes
This site is located on a cul-de-sac in an established neighbourhood. While the front of the site faces 80+ year old homes, the rear overlooks a spectacular ravine. Our two principal goals: integrate a new home into a historical area and bring the natural landscape into the home.
To help with integration, we used complimentary brick and exterior detailing and sympathetic scale. From the front entry, classical symmetry draws the visitor towards the light-filled rear family room, and the views of the stone terrace and lush ravine beyond. The formal symmetry is balanced by the open flow of rooms and pared-down interior detailing.
