Spaces: Levitt Goodman Architects: Adams Fleming House: Toronto

. Saturday, November 21, 2009

"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."

Complimenting the interior is nice collection of American and Canadian 20th Century design, including a Charles + Ray Eames dining table with DCM Chairs and a lounge chair with ottoman; side chairs by Harry Bertoia and Robin Bush, Russel Spanner lounge chairs, and an Isamu Noguchi table lamp. Outside a touch of Pop-era Scandinavia with a set of 4 Verner Panton S chairs.
