Mount Pleasant House by Roundabout Studio Inc.

This contemporary single family residence located in Toronto, Canada. Was completely redesigned in 2012 by Roundabout Studio Inc.

For more than half a century this site was home to Cruickshank’s, a neighborhood fixture and much-loved flower bulb distributor. Sadly, Cruickshank’s closed in 2001 and vacated the building. A few owners later, a local music enthusiast purchased it, seeing it as an opportunity to revive the site, creating an exciting house with a meaningful presence on the street. In 2012 he commissioned Roundabout Studio to convert the two connected yet disparate buildings into a single cohesive new home with a focus on music and entertainment.

Located directly on a busy Toronto thoroughfare, the house provides shelter from the street, with only a few, carefully placed windows. A long hallway leads to the protected interior foyer, where the home opens up to the sky with a quiet, light-filled interior that belies the building’s location. The main spaces are organized around an interior courtyard and a series of large-scale skylights that help to stream sun into the depths of the building, while retaining a great amount of privacy.
