Daniels Residence   South Hill Deep Green Heritage Restoration   The Daniels Residence is a carefully orchestrated synthesis of resource and energy-efficient additions, heritage restoration, and deep green retrofit to a Toronto Art Deco masterpiece. A symphony of 21st-century sustainability, it takes advantage of the existing site orientation to maximize vistas and capture cool breezes from the adjacent low-lying areas, harnesses passive solar heating and cooling, and exemplifies a variety of creative reuse opportunities that presented themselves in the original structure.  Further sustainable strategies include: rainwater collection for irrigation, highly-effective insulation, a green roof, energy-efficient doors and windows, geo-exchange heating and cooling, multiple optimally-sized heat pumps efficiently zoned throughout the house, solar thermal hot water, sun shading devices, thermal mass concrete floors, hydronic radiant floor heating, and best-possible indoor air quality strategies.  The Daniels’ spectacular collection of art, furniture, and light fixtures fills a home that is just as breathtaking in form. As stylish as it is green and sustainable, the reimagination of its landmark Art Deco nascence is a testament to David, Kate, and their team’s mission to preserve the old while weaving in the new.
