Aldo House by Prototype Design Lab / Canada

Aldo House by Prototype Design Lab (6)

Designed by Prototype Design Lab, the Aldo house is a single family house located in South Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

The Aldo House is comprised of three slipping volumes of varying heights and lengths, staggered to respond to site and programmatic conditions. Each one is clad with a different  material to hint at its interior function: cumaru wood planks; white quartz stone; and custom, diamond-shaped corten steel panels. The interior of the house continues the clear lines and filigreed details of the exterior.
