Design Excellence Network for Local Government| ReHousing Toronto
Calling all Local Government Designers !
Join the Design Excellence Network for Local Government (DEN) for a presentation by University of Toronto and LGA Architectural Partners on their ReHOUSING the Yellowbelt project with Tuf Lab.
ReHOUSING Toronto aims to empower citizens to achieve home ownership and create new rental units. Their site offers cost-conscious designs to convert typical single-family homes across the Toronto ‘Yellowbelt’ into multiplex housing.
ReHousing is a research project that explores how to convert single-family homes into multi-unit housing, using affordable, common-sense design to yield high-quality, well-designed space. Our housing catalogue has over 50 plans for 13 of the most common house types in Toronto. We are currently applying this research through collaborations with non-profit housing creators, development advisors and the City of Toronto’s planning group: Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods (EHON).
ReHousing is a collaboration between the University of Toronto, Tuf Lab and LGA Architectural Partners. This partnership brings together structured design research methods with practice-based knowledge to address real-world problems.
