ai???This neighbourhood is full of houses that look all the same. People think it is expensive to own designs. But Toronto deserves to have more of theseai??? says the architect while pointing out to a house in Lumsden Avenue that looks fairly surreal comparing to the surroundings. Traditional modelled dwellings with their brick fa ades are allowing rusted steel and untreated wood panels, mysteriously covering two small windows, to be an unexpected exciting discovery in their neighbourhood.

ai???It started from a rectangle and a shaft ai???Aliabadi explains while drawing diagrams of the concept. ai???The shaft is a void of light surrounded by services and circulation. There is no wall creating spaces in the design. Rooms are shaped from their circulation around a shaft that acts as a light well in the heart of the house. ai???
