Reading in Toronto - superkül inc., a r c h i t e c t
imageimageimageToronto's Rosedale neighbourhood resisted modernism for more than fifty years. In fact, the enclave gets its charm from a lingering impression that Queen Victoria would feel at home driving a carriage along its well-tailored streets. Change is, after all, something meant for those who can't afford stability. That's why when an invader makes its way inside the Rosedale gates Torontonians have to take notice. This house on Crescent Road by Superkül Architect, accomplishes what many though impossible. It brings Toronto Modern into the Rosedale fabric. Yet it, like the Glen Road house by KPMB, manages to be a good neighbour.

Superkül is a design studio founded by Architect Andre D'Elia. Not surprisingly, he worked at KPMB until leaving in 2002 to establish his own studio. What do the designers at Superkül read?
