Mimico Creek House

Toronto, Ontario

Located on the top of a large site overlooking Mimico Creek in Toronto, this three-storey family dwelling features a central corridor and stairway that connects the interior spaces with the exterior views to the creek and ravine. The corridor separates the utility spaces, garage and mudroom from the main living spaces.

Open riser stairs and wooden screens allow for dynamic views around the 4,060 sq. ft. house. The main plan begins at the street side with a private dining room, open kitchen and lowered living room, with floor-to-ceiling south-facing glass and patio access.

The patio has a retractable rain screen, sun shading, and leads to a barbecue area off the kitchen. The basement offers storage, guest room, gym, and recreation room. The upper floor includes four bedrooms and two bathrooms, with the master suite benefitting from the elevated views to the creek.
