I try not to repete content from other blogs but it happens from time to time. With this project from Levitt Goodman Architects I have no problem doing so. I love everything about this conversion inside and out. There are way too many things to list but the collection of mid century modern furniture and the concrete tub are just a couple of reasons to look at this project one more time.

On a street of historic, working-class cottages in Toronto’s west end, adjacent to a railway line and a supermarket parking lot, a vacant auto-body shop may have seemed like an unlikely impetus for a residence with a domestic character. The clients—Debbie Adams, a graphic designer, and Peter Fleming, a furniture designer/craftsman—had a limited budget but considerable talent and resources. Working with Levitt Goodman Architects, the project became a laboratory for artistic collaboration and experimentation. Over several years they have transformed the industrial site into an artful urban oasis.
