Rooftop Garden Home Design in Toronto, Canada

This rooftop garden home design is a sustainable gem in a central downtown Toronto, Canada neighborhood, bringing a bit of nature into the urban core. “Compact, ecologically smart, affordable and successfully integrated within a diverse streetscape, the Euclid Avenue Home is a useful prototype for new urban housing. The project’s design restraint, responsive plan, its unity of architecture and nature establish an array of alternatives to the shortcomings of Toronto’s housing typologies,” according to Canadian architecture firm Levitt Goodman Architects. Sitting on a standard 20-ft. wide lot is an anything-but-standard house – an eco sustainable house of two storeys plus a basement, which minimized the home’s footprint while maximizing its function. Large windows flood interiors with natural light, while providing a view of the lushly planted garden and the fabulous outdoor living areas. But this home’s gardens aren’t confined to the ground-level. This rooftop garden house reduces heat island effect while adding a much-needed touch of nature to the concrete jungle.
