This exquisitely crafted urban pied a terre has been fashioned from 2,500 square feet of space in a former livery stable. The remarkable transformation, tucked behind an unassuming façade on an urban laneway, is located in downtown Toronto’s historic Cabbagetown district. The remarkable architectural presence of this project is due to the careful consideration of the total design at all scales, including selection of furnishings, custom built millwork, and even the small components such as the custom fabricated mailbox and credenza. Well-considered planning of spaces, a rich palette of materials and access to the outdoors contribute to the sybaritic pleasures to be had within this seemingly modest former carriage house.
