Scope and Content

This project series documents the design and construction of the Reisman-Jenkinson residence and studio located at 92 Westwood Lane in Richmond Hill, Ontario from 1988-1991. The office identified the project number as 8813.

This project consisted of a house and an attached studio with split-face concrete block exteriors for sculptor Stephen Jenkinson and writer Dolly Reisman. The house was divided into four wings, referred to in the documentation as Building A, Building B, Building C, and Building D. Building A was the studio at the front of the property, which had a distinctive marquis roof made of metal that fanned into a skylight. Building B, the main living area, was a loft-style building that included the kitchen, dining room, living room and conservatory on the ground floor and an office and storage spaces in the basement. This building was marked by large glass walls at the front of the property and a pyramid-shaped skylight above the kitchen. Building C extended towards the back of the property and was considered the sleeping wing, housing bedrooms at the ground floor and a playroom in the basement. Finally, Building D, which sat on the back corner of Building C, was the master bedroom and included a gym at the basement level. Buildings B, C, and D created a semi circle whose interior contained an exterior courtyard and gardens. Multiple schemes were investigated for this project, including different layouts of the basements and the ground floor of Building C.

The project is recorded through original drawings, textual records and photographs dating from 1988-1991. The drawings document the design and construction of the home and include plans, sections, elevations, axonometric drawings and perspectives of interiors, exteriors and furnishings. Also present are structural, electrical and mechanical drawings issued for construction. Textual records are included to support the drawings. The photographs show the completed home.
