IRONSIDE ARCHITECT was formed in 1992. Projects have included custom homes on both rural and urban sites, residential renovations and additions, office renovations, group homes and a cultural centre. Styles have varied from traditional to contemporary, reflecting client taste and site context.
The Toronto-based firm has completed many projects throughout the GTA in areas such as Forest Hill, Rosedale, Lawrence Park, The Beach, Bloor West and High Park. Outside of Toronto, project locations have included Caledon, Brampton, Big Bay Point, Bon Echo Park, Barrie, Stouffville and Rice Lake. Out-of-province projects have been built in Nova Scotia, Virginia and Michigan.
Clients can expect carefully prepared designs and budgets, accurate permit and contract drawings, and continued involvement through construction. An initial courtesy meeting is offered to discuss the proposed project. References are available, upon request.
Good architecture is experienced both "Inside and Out". The exterior and interior design of a project should be considered together. Ironside Architect provides design solutions for the entire project.
