Other winners of bedroom apartments in Toronto include the redesigned Broadview Hotel, the student learning center at Ryerson University, and the revitalization of the Front Street.
Lee's architectural philosophy draws inspiration from the process that most torotonians are already familiar with: buying a home and then renting it out to help pay for it.
"A lot of people buy a house and rent out the basement and later, when they can afford it, they take back the space," she said on Thursday morning on the subway.
In the case of "Flex", apartment units can easily be subdivided into smaller apartments, which can then be recycled when the owner needs space.
"You can rent a portion to pay for your mortgage and you can take back the space as your family grows," Li said . ".
A specific location is considered when designing "Flex": 794 Dundas StW.
Located near the intersection of Dundas and Palmerston avenue.
In addition to the flexible units, Li's design also highlights the roadway that is integrated into the north of the plot.
"I wanted to connect the main street Dundas to the roadway at the back and attract people in through an open main floor," she explained . ".
The image of the design shows a green alley that can be used by cars, bicycles and pedestrians.
So can Flex be built?
"I hope so," said Li.
