The Lippincott Project was a full gut of a Victorian home in downtown Toronto. The foundation had glaring deficiencies that necessitated the full replacement of foundations walls and basement walkout. The basement now has an 8’ finished ceiling height with a generous walkout to the backyard.
The main and second floors were completely transformed by the construction of a 2-story addition on the rear of the house. The addition included Douglas Fir windows and bi-fold doors from Loewen Windows & Doors with an architecturally finished cementitious stucco on the façade that changes color and texture throughout the day with the sunlight. Also clad on the exterior is custom Douglas Fir millwork that brings warmth and color to the façade. All skylights are from Velu and are solar powered operable units that close automatically when rain falls.
From the inside, the space boasts Quarter-Cut White Oak flooring and cabinets finished with Rubio Monocoat. Both kitchen and master bedroom ceilings also include a finished oak ceiling paneling with flush dimmable LED lighting.
