In this episode George is joined by the recipient of the 2021 Emerging Architect Award at the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada awards, he talks to Anya Moryoussef about her Craven Road Micro House project in Toronto.
‘I don’t need a lot of space, I’m not worried about resale, I just want a house for me’ , this was the simple brief given to Anya by her client Laurel and George loves the design she has delivered.
In the interview George finds out how Anya fought tooth and nail for her client to get approval for the design, how she worked within a small footprint to create a simple and private living space with plenty of daylight and, how she delivered the project to a modest budget by being smart with material choices.
At the end of the episode, George asks Anya the three questions he asks all his podcast guests;
– what really annoys her about her home?
– what house has she visited that has really inspired her?
– and, if she could choose anyone to design her a new house, who would she choose?
