Levitt Goodman Architects have designed the Euclid Avenue house in Toronto, Canada.

From the architects:

Compact, ecologically smart, affordable and successfully integrated within a diverse streetscape, the Euclid Avenue House is a useful prototype for new urban housing. The project’s design restraint, responsive plan and its unity of architecture and nature establish an array of alternatives to the shortcomings of Toronto’s housing typologies.

Simplicity of means has resulted in a strategically planned and relaxed living space that accommodates the life of a full family and invites the varying temperature, light and colour of Toronto’s fluctuating seasons into the house, imbuing it with a rural sensibility that is an astonishing compliment to its urban setting.
