Tesseract house is a contemporary new build in the Long Branch neighbourhood of Toronto. A speculative, self-initiated project designed without a client, it was an exercise to demonstrate that high-quality contemporary architecture is in demand in the marketplace. The project was successfully completed when the development team was able to sell quicker and exceeded expectations.

From the architect: The project has no programmatic limitations, enabling the design team to experiment with, and implement ideas that would not typically be seen in more conventional homes. The responses to the site constraints informed the big design ideas in order to allow the house to function well as a dwelling as well as be of the highest comfort standards, in relation to having access to natural light and fresh air. This intent was carried all the way down to the detailing of the house where the various textures and materials are elegantly and thoughtfully joined together.
