atelier rzlbd: charcoal house
atelier rzlbd has done two similar houses in Toronto recently: Charcoal and Shaft, 3-storey wood frame buildings on small lots. They have been photographed by borXu in a most interesting way, as if they were elevation drawings. And on such narrow lots, 20-24' that is exactly what a house presents to the street: its face.
There is no great disturbance of space in the presentation of these houses, they are as one would see them: urban, private and elegant.
