Drew Mandel Architects designed the 'Moore Park Residence,' a contemporary dwelling located in the residential neighborhood of the same name in Toronto, Canada.

The architects tore the original, 1920s-era home down, to create a more contemporary style in its place; albeit, a contemporary style that agrees with its surrounding environment. The complex plan is characterized by a concrete wall, transparent partitions and interconnecting voids. Each of these elements manage to utilize light and shadow effectively. Moreover, they work to diffuse the boundaries within the home, creating a continuous and open interior.

Moreover, the house boasts a gas fire pit, curved foot path leading to its entrance and three green roofs. The third floor terraces, in particular, offer charismatic views of the tree canopy located beneath.
