A penthouse in mid-town Toronto, this home epitomizes restrained and exquisite contemporary design while being warm, comfortable and welcoming. Located on a half floor, the home has west, north and east exposures. Designed for an empty nester couple who frequently entertains for family, business and charitable functions, this home has three distinct zones – the interior courtyard, the entertainment or public zone, and the private zone.
This north-facing space acts as a decompression chamber in which the visitor immediately connects with northern daylight, flowing water on the walls flanking the bridge and the green space outside. Because the home was designed pre-construction, the architecture of the building was modified to incorporate clerestory windows within the space.
Facing north and west, the space incorporates a connection to the exterior terraces, site lines and functionality. The gourmet kitchen is clad in white Corian and has back painted white glass accents, has all of the latest appliances. The island has a dropped area for breakfast bar. Pantry and laundry are tucked off to the side and separated by a sliding door. The dining room has an eye-level linear gas fireplace which anchors the space and is a focal point to the room. The living room lounge accommodates large groups in an intimate ‘pit’ arrangement of the sofas and side chairs. Outdoor living space is an extension of the interior complete with fire pit, water feature and dining.
