1180 Comox Street

1880 Comox renderHere’s another infill proposal for Mole Hill, which offers an intriguing example trying to achieve densification on a single 33′ x 131′ city lot. There’s a single storey bungalow here which only dates back to the early 1950s, built after a fire in the adjacent Strathmore Lodge.

As with the previous post, there was an initial proposal for greater additional density, but new (to us) architects Haeccity Studio have now submitted the most comprehensive package we’ve ever read to justify a 6 unit rental project that would have three building elements while retaining the existing mature cypress tree located roughly in the middle of the site. Two of the units would have two bedrooms, and one would have three. The design is distinctly contemporary, with traditional shapes and colours (including a pitched roof) but modern materials.
