Di Stefano Residence, London, Ontario (1987-1990)



Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 723 drawings (including 9 reprographic copies)
Scope and content:
This project series documents the design and construction of the Di Stefano residence located at 98 Tetherwood Boulevard in London, Ontario from 1987-1990. The office identified the project number as 8720.

This project consisted of a V shaped house with a red brick masonry veneer and cedar shingles that was about 3300 square feet in size. From above, the two arms of the V appeared almost as separate structures, connected only at the front of the home by an entrance hall. However, the front facade of the home joined the two arms fluidly using a curved wall that matched the round street court in front of the home. One arm of the house was two storeys with a garage and kitchen on the ground floor and bedrooms on the second. This arm was shorter than the other but opened onto a patio in the backyard. The other arm contained the master bedroom and great hall on the ground floor and in place of a second storey, had a sloped roof with four chimneys. There was also a basement for storage, with future plans for a rec room and workshop. Several design schemes were investigated for this home, with variations on the floor plan layout, the shape of the house, the number of storeys, and the positioning of the garage and patio.
The project is recorded through original drawings used for design and construction which date from 1987-1990. The large part of the drawings consist of sketches, plans, elevations, sections, details, isometrics and perspectives.
