The Shaft House by Atelier Rzlbd is located in Toronto, Canada. As the name suggests, it is simply just a rectangular structure. Considering how most say less is more, the Shaft House follows this concept and is simply that.

Although the two and a half-storey home is narrow, it plays very well with tall spacial areas inside. A winding staircase on the sides of the house allows for open space in the middle to overlook each floor, reflecting a more spacious environment. The great thing about the Shaft House is that it is affordable due to its simple design. Stats for Modest Rectangular Homes Trending: Older & Warm
