Gallery Loft Towns
Situated on a narrow lot just north of the Art Gallery of Ontario in downtown Toronto, the Gallery Loft Towns is an 8-unit infill condominium townhouse project that integrates green design with flexible family housing.
The ground floor design of each unit provides space for in-home office use, while the consolidation of parking in stackers accessed from an adjacent public laneway allows for backyards filled with native plantings.
The building materials specified include formaldehyde-free cabinetry and recycled finishes, as well as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood throughout. Additionally, passive solar heating and natural ventilation are used to reduce the need for mechanical systems. Solar shading devices and deciduous trees provide relief during the hot summer months.
