Akb Architects has designed Lytton Park Residence featuring an asymmetric and gently sloping roof. Located near Lytton Park in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the house was built in 2017.
In this project, we explore the hip roof typology within the context of a quasi-suburban environment. The apex of the upper volume is off-set toward the west, positioning it adjacent to the larger of its neighbouring houses. The asymmetric and gently sloping expanse of roof planes present a contemporary interpretation of the hip roof which both responds to and challenges the status quo of its contextual setting.
The angles of the roof translate to the interior with a dramatically sloped ceiling of multi-faceted planes above a central stair where natural light filters through a large skylight above. An emphasis on light is experienced throughout the home given long expanses of floor to ceiling glass and the project’s signature window wrapping the wall and folding onto the roof.
