Zinc House

Location: Toronto, Ontario
Year Completed: 2006
Builder: Reno King Contracting Ltd.
Addition and interior renovation

The existing bay window located at the front elevation of the Zinc House was re-invented and vertically extruded to create a third floor addition above. This powerful volume, clad in zinc accommodates a bedroom and ensuite washroom. A sculptural, steel staircase suspended in the new triple-height space can be viewed from all sides. Hence, every aspect of its design and construction had to be fully resolved through a close collaboration between the metal fabricator, the structural engineer and the builder.
