Hi. More tomorrow (Jan. 25) about the Interior Design Show and other events. But I have a story today in The Globe and Mail about a project that shows some good design and equally strong community spirit.
It’s the home of my neighbours Aaron Letki and Angela Tsementzis (who is in the photo above). Letki, a talented young architect, grew up in our area – near Christie Pits Park – and when he moved back in, he brought a sense of community. He renovated a beat-up convenience store, added a storey on top to create a duplex for himself, and fought for the right to open a café here, and The Hub is a comfortable meeting place for neighbours of all stripes.
It’s an interesting case for how to redevelop this building type.
