Colizza Bruni Architecture designed this development of 6 new homes that replaced a single house in Ottawa, Canada.
From the architect
The development consists of 6 new homes in the neighbourhood of Hintonburg. The four detached and one semi-detached buildings replace a former single detached dwelling and garage which occupied the 600 m2 lot. Each home is 100 m2 and is built on a 100 m2 lot. The buildings are 2 storeys, with a partial third storey; each has an at-grade as well as a rooftop amenity space, one parking space and is clad in metal siding. The design is a collage of colours, forms and textures where its materiality makes reference back to the industrial heritage of the neighbourhood.
