Ravine House

Location: Toronto, Ontario
Year Completed: 2007
Builder: Eisner Murray Ltd.
New construction

Ravine House is a sculptural composition of forms that wrap around a courtyard and a cascading staircase leading to the ravine beyond. A reduced palette of limestone and oak was used throughout the project. The rigorous application of Eramosa limestone provided an opportunity to experiment with numerous finishing techniques that reveal the transformative qualities latent within the material. The private master suite hangs in the treetops and a separate wing containing the grandparents’ suite cantilevers over the ravine below.
