Residence of Mr. & Mrs. J.C. Parkin, Alterations and Additions, North York, Ontario (1959-1962)
This project series documents alterations and additions to the residence of John C. Parkin and his family in North York, Ontario from 1959-1962. The office identified the project number as 5933.
The architect's family home, designed by him a few years earlier, was a one-storey, white brick faced bungalow located at 75 The Bridle Path. The home eventually became an acclaimed symbol of a modern dwelling in North America. This project consisted of alterations to the existing house, as well as additions to enlarge the home. The house included a pool and gardens, bedrooms for his children, a study, and maid's quarters, among other rooms. The house has since been demolished.
The project is recorded through drawings and textual records dating from 1955-1977. The majority of drawings are originals, which include plans, elevations, and some construction drawings. The textual materials consist of correspondence, construction documentation, variation orders, contract data, tender proposals, and specifications.
Materials in this project series have been compiled from different accessions and/or arranged by material type.
