CABBAGETOWN STUDIO

In 2009 I spent several weeks during the summer designing and building a small artist’s studio in the Cabbagetown neighbourhood in Toronto.  With a focus on sustainability and re-use, the building was constructed with ICFs, several used windows and excess construction lumber purchased from the Habitat for Humanity Restore.  Although compact in footprint, the project involved excavation, forming and pouring footings, foundation wall construction, framing, window installation, insulation and vapour barrier, interior and exterior siding and the construction of a sealed parapet for a future green roof.  The interior provided room for a potter’s wheel, painting studio and a meditation loft.  Please enjoy the photos of this project below.
