The Toronto Residence designed by Belzberg Architecture received the 2013 Ontario Association of Architects Design Excellence award. Very modern, and breezy, the stratified home showcases different types of materials for each of its layer, creating a very interesting contrast (plasters blends with zinc cladding, wood and stones). The house takes advantage of the natural rich surroundings. The flawless transition between environments is emphasised through floor-to-ceiling windows and open spaces. “Large portions of glazing along with clean lines and simple volumetric proportions underscore the client’s interest in creating a space with an effortless flow between interior and exterior; in a climate that is not always conducive to this type of habitation.”

The home with its gorgeous garden inspires relaxation. There’s a terrace where you can just sit with your mug in the morning, drinking your coffee while planning your day. Private, yet airy, the Toronto Residence is the type of home that combines perfectly nature and the cozy home ambience while revealing sharp and pleasant contemporary notes. The interior is characterised by a graceful décor, with a complex wooden staircase serving as a main attraction point.
