ARCH-ARQ: Overhead and Underfoot: An evolving housing prototype employs a raised floor system and a double-height volume.


In 2003, the Toronto-based Interior Design Show asked local architecture firm Baird Sampson Neuert to create one of three pavilions for this Canadian version of the Salone del Mobile. Responding to the event’s theme of dense urban living, Baird Sampson Neuert created the 550-square-foot LightSpace. “At the time the condo boom was well underway, and there were many units being built around that size that were poorly planned,” says firm partner Barry Sampson. The pavilion was really intended as a prototype, imagined as a one-bedroom apartment within a multistory building with double-loaded corridors.
