Description

New to this year’s Festival, TO DO Tours is a signature event series of designer-led tours that offer access to some of the more recent and interesting architectural projects that make Toronto a great place to live, work, and play.

Informed by our 2017 theme of ‘Living Well’, TO DO has selected a handful of projects that explore the many intersections of design and well-being from both public and private perspectives.

This tour focuses on three examples of recent domestic architecture in Toronto that positively transform space for everyday living, each with a unique twist. With a small footprint, the Solares House by Solares Architecture adapts an older west-end home to create healthy, sustainable, and functional living environments through innovative construction materials and methods. Across the city, Shim Sutcliffe’s Laneway House takes advantage of underutilized urban space to create a calm, warm, and inviting living environment. Completing the tour is a third house to be announced. Altogether, these three houses show the range of ingenuity and innovation that marks the impact of domestic architecture in the world’s most diverse city.

Meet at the Gladstone Hotel Lobby, 1214 Queen Street West. Transportation between houses and back to the meeting point will be provide by a private coach bus.
