These seventeen, two- to three-storey townhouse units vary in size and create different housing options for families, unique for the South Granville neighborhood.
The contemporary architecture that considers local traditional building styles with a nod to Europe evolved from the context of the area. A steep, pitched roof, the oval windows, divided light windows, bay windows and wrought iron rails introduce a French element to the design. Architectural details like ornamental moulding, robust wood detailing and wood dental moulding give Maisonette a distinctive character.
Outdoor space is provided through a variety of rooftop decks, patios, and a courtyard, the stepped back upper levels allowing further natural light.
