Where Modern Architecture Meets
Traditional Toronto

Webb & Lashbrook prides itself on experience and sensitivity to the details and construction methods that make renovating and adding to traditional Toronto homes so challenging.

These examples show the small but important details of these meeting points, where modern architecture meets original building. The way a traditional molding meets a new reveal. The incorporation of a radiator cover with new millwork. The insertion of organizational and display units in houses conceived in an era when closets and storage were much more spare than our contemporary lifestyles demand. The way the light catches a corrugated metal wall in a neighbourhood of traditional Victorian homes.

The execution of these details also demonstrates the intuition and advanced carpentry skills required to create a sense of visual order in buildings where true 90-degree angles are rare.
