A new red steel column and cast in-situ concrete wall are the defining features of this extension and refurbishment project. A combination of full height and hidden doors create flexible space and have transformed the ground floor of this property into a single open-plan space, with room zones defined by floor level and material changes.

The dining and kitchen area is tiled with charred black wood flooring, chosen to produce a striking backdrop for the terrazzo kitchen and island, which is connected with a matching terrazzo floor. Concrete baffles below the new glass ceiling reflect and diffuse light.

The prominent red structural column highlights the clients’ love of Bauhaus’s creativity and primary colours. The Bladerunner house was inspired by the client’s personality and love of Brutalism, to come together in a fun, adventurous exploration of materiality.

Instar House: Minimalist Three-Storey Home by Atelier RZLBD

Instar House is a minimalist three-storey wood & steel structure, which is located on the southern edge of Allenby, a neighbourhood on the border between North York and Toronto. While carefully responds to the needs and lifestyle of the clients, the house has moulted from the small foot-print of the two-and-a-half storey structure that had occupied the site since early 1950s and was infamously nicknamed as half-house.
