This historical Victorian row house located in the heart of downtown Toronto near Yorkville Avenue strikes a fine balance between original high ceilings and detailing on the main floor and a unique contemporary attic loft space above. Andrew Fee, who has designed and built several attic conversions says, “clients like the idea that building up is less expensive than building out”. “We suggest they take their unusable existing attic space and expand upwards while still keeping within the City of Toronto height restrictions”.

At Lowther we took a Victorian row house, removed the existing roof and re-configured a new flat roof allowing us to add a third floor Master Suite while still maintaining the original listed facade. A new contemporary staircase leads to the private master which incorporates a large bedroom with seating and desk areas with glass curtain wall accessing a terrace. A large walk-in closet and five-piece marble bathroom has custom vanities and skylights that lend a bright open feeling to the design. The result is a loft-like Master Suite filled with natural light.


Attic Loft:
- 5-piece Master Bathroom with custom made lacquered vanities and Calcutta marble
- contemporary staircase with glass railing leading to the new Master Suite
- Dressing Room with custom built-in closets and skylight
- Master Bedroom with glass curtain wall opening onto a balcony
