Located in Toronto’s Lawrence Park
neighbourhood, Blythwood Road was
constructed as a link between Yonge
Street and the first north-south street
to its east, Bayview Avenue. In 2003 the
Blythwood Road Heritage Conservation
District (HCD) was created, establishing
guidelines to ensure that alterations
to buildings within the district “enhance
and sustain the unique heritage
character of the District”. The District
contains buildings from a range of
periods, including our Client’s Craftsman
home, built in 1921.

Our challenge was to update and
expand the home with expansive
light-filled spaces, while retaining the
scale, proportion, and character of the
existing structure
