UNDER ONE ROOF

Under the pressure of Toronto’s rising housing price and its aging population, living across generations and dense living have become increasingly commons nowadays. Multi-generational living is exciting as research has indicated that people benefit from social interactions with different age groups. However, people might not always get alone when living closely due to different lifestyles, habits, and beliefs. We need to rethink how to live together – how to celebrate collectivity while maintaining the individuality of each household and each person?

This project aims to approach a collective yet individualized and flexible multi-generational living experience from its programs, circulations, unit layouts, and facade treatment.
