Terrace House 2   
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
To take advantage of the wooded rear yard, the house has a strong visual and physical connection with the outdoors through the living area.

The flat roof planes cascade down the sloped site, transitioning between the volumes of the adjacent houses.  Details are clean yet comfortable in their natural and earth-toned palette of materials.
