As priorities and lifestyles change, many families are making the decision to stay in the city instead of move to the suburbs for a bigger home. Karen White and David MacNaughtan decided to make a slim small lot in Toronto the site of their new home.

They hired architect Donald Chong to design this minimalist home. While the home is certainly skinny—at only 12 feet wide—it’s not really that small with 2,100 square feet. Donald Chong made an impressive use of space with the design. The photos were taken by Dean Kaufman. Check out more of Donald Chong’s work at the links below.
