Sherbrooke Long Semis
Sherbrooke Long Semis are a 2022 GOHBA award finalist for custom urban multi-unit homes. This development in the heart of Hintonburg consists of eight, high quality units in a pair of contemporary 2 storey long semi-detached dwellings.
These two semis are oriented back to front and called 'long semis' under Ottawa zoning. Each building houses 4 dwelling units; a primary unit facing the street, a primary unit facing the rear, and two basement units. With a rich pallet of materials and top workmanship, these buildings add distinction and quality to this diverse neighbourhood street. The primary units have ground floor open concept living spaces and a half bath. There are three bedrooms and two baths on the second floor, which make these units ideal for urban families.
Four one-bedroom units in the half basements are welcoming and bright with large corner windows in their open concept living/dining room. These delightful and efficient living spaces allow 8 households to join in the dynamic lifestyle of this unique and walkable neighbourhood. This unusual approach to infill design is smart, fast, and cost effective, constructed affordably in wood frame 'house' construction.
These homes are a striking presence on the street and a welcome contribution to the existing streetscape character.
