big city small footprint.
by victoria comment



i love the home featured in the new issue of covet garden. owners and architects Janna and Dean designed their home to help demonstrate how you can build a sustainable house in the big city — in this case, toronto. But they also show how you don’t have to sacrifice style, comfort or personality in a modern space — there is just so much attention to special details, and a truly eclectic mix of cultures and collections here — appropriately, they like to call it ‘bricolage’ (the construction or creation of a work from a diverse range of things that happen to be available). i love the industrial-looking light fixture from castor design studio hanging over a heirloom dining table from jenna’s side of the family. you gotta go check out the whole, beautiful space — including a green-living rooftop garden.

oh, and just to let you know the new Covet Garden Home magazine in print is now available for preorder. Visit their shop to purchase your advance copy.

  1. Such a great house in a great neighbourhood! I had an opportunity to tour it years ago during a Doors Open event (at least I think it was Doors Open), when living in Toronto. Nice to see it again. Thanks for the post.
