Sorauren Garden

Overall Model View

This typical Toronto semi detached house has a very atypical garden: a courtyard that stretches between house, artist studio and behind the adjacent house property. The challenge of the project was to balance the domestic needs of the house inhabitants with the public nature of the studio – a place for art education. An outdoor gallery area provides the main entry to the studio and public lounge space. It is separated from the main courtyard, which comprises a pergola covered dining area, sitting area and “retreat” – a wood wrapped area poised and ready for pillows, rugs and sun.
