First Ave Semi-detached

The First Avenue residences are a modern interpretation of the traditional red brick, stucco or wood siding homes in Ottawa’s historic Glebe community. Consistent with our belief that each residence should respond to its specific site positioning, these fraternal twins express their unique characters through differently articulated exterior forms and differing interior plans. To fit the intimate scale of the street, the relatively large elevations on the houses are broken into a series of playful forms that evoke the bays, front porches, eaves and balconies of the surrounding neighbourhood houses.
