Fab 40: Cindy Rendely, Toronto
Architect Cindy Rendely approaches her profession with special attention to detail. Her studio not only produces buildings, ranging from residential, commercial and institutional projects, but also extends to product, landscape as well as jewellery design; Rendely is also a trained goldsmith, jeweller and metal artist.
The Toronto-based practice recently completed the Staircase House, the transformation of a Toronto Victorian home into a contemporary zinc-clad volume, featuring a dominant sculptural steel and wood staircase. Rendely’s architectural work spans a variety of different scales and apart from a series of recent residential renovations and extensions, including the Forest Hill Residence and a Private Residence in Toronto, work continues on OBJEX, her line of domestic products.
