One Roxborough West is situated in the intimate Summerhill community—at the confluence of tree-lined residential streets and iconic Yonge street.
The project comes to life with a deep appreciation for the Summerhill neighbourhood and an approach rooted in the unique qualities of the site and area.
The duality of high street and home is a concept that underpins the project and recurs as a formal and material design strategy.
The building façade responds contextually to its surroundings; a sleek, tidy envelope addresses the urban interface with Yonge Street.
At grade, a two-storey podium reinforces the existing, well-defined street wall and small-scale retail character of the high street.
Narrow retail bays are framed in warm, textured red brick creating a consistent tactile and visual language, familiar to the neighbourhood shops that line the Summerhill corridor.
