This Canadian home’s unique look comes from the use of corten steel on its front face 

TACT Design have created 66 Heathdale, which is a 3,200 sq ft custom single-family residence located on the ravine of Cedarvale Park in Mid-town Toronto, Canada. This house projects a resolute demeanour towards the street with an undaunted face toward the ravine. The carefully crafted inner core is grounded by the sculpted wooden stair, which culminates at the 3rd floor study and wrap-around terrace. 

Expansive windows allow the owners to dwell amongst the ravine's tree canopy while the lower family area spills into the shaded rear yard. The front dining area finds its comfort under the brow of the striking yet reserved corten steel face. The dichotomy of the design responds to the contrasting public and private sides of the site; rooting it in its context while expressing the persona of the owners. 

The architects have pushed the design of the space to it’s full potential, while at the same time respecting the client’s budget. This proves that innovative design can be created within modest budgets, and that financial constraints can be used as an impetus to push creativity further.
