Tobias Lutke House

This family-friendly home features bright colours, plenty of natural light, and a few technological upgrades. Despite being a contemporary design (created by Linebox Architecture's Andrew Reeves), the building's small scale, careful massing, and use of brick and cedar cladding make it a unique, yet appropriate, addition to New Edinburgh's eclectic mix of homes.

The couple's 2,500-square-foot, family-oriented home on Ivy Crescent reflects their balanced outlook. McKean, 34, describes a meticulous two-year search for just the right lot as we sat in the gourmet-equipped, light-filled kitchen, despite the fact that they already knew and admired the southeast corner of New Edinburgh where they eventually settled. They discovered a little, partially gutted cottage on a 32-foot-wide site that had been unoccupied for six years.

However, demolishing and constructing a new home was not without its difficulties. The city had modified the laws, making parking from Ivy no longer an option, as it adapted haphazardly to the repercussions of its intensification agenda. This necessitated lobbying the city to reopen the back public laneway, a move that, while successful, was controversial with some neighbours who had taken over portions of the public right-of-way.

From the street, the two-storey house appears as “three sliding volumes,” Reeves says, starting with a brick-clad centre block with unique corner-eroding windows. To the east is a slim, recessed and extruded portion in stained cedar with four horizontal slot windows that allow morning light deep into the first level. On the west is a wider but more deeply recessed block, also in cedar, that appears almost separated from the house by an indented glazed “slot.” Entry is through a large glass door in this west wing.
