These designs are for illustrative purposes only, and not intended for construction.

“Mosaic” is carefully designed to offer a high quality of life for each of the four unique units. The front structure consists of a side-by-side duplex, with a two-storeys in height that feels at home in any established single-detached neighbourhood; a basement is optional here.

The rear structure, connected to the front only by a deck, contains two stacked units; the ground-level unit is fully accessible, making the complex age-in-place ready. The two units can be separated, or one can be treated as a lock-off suite to the other.

Each of the four units has a generous private deck or yard, creating a spacious courtyard feel between them, while the front yard is large enough to accommodate a mature tree. A side drive (or side street on a smaller, corner lot) provides the access to a parking space for each unit, including two garage spaces.

Offering a total of 9 bedrooms, “Mosaic” has a gentle FSR of 0.66 on the 60×125’ lot shown, and 0.79 on the 50×125’ lot. This design assumes each unit is sprinklered.
