This twenty-five hundred square foot home is a real standout, with its front facade of glass and its towering three story height, nestled amongst the trees of midtown Toronto. The homeowner and I wanted to create a home that is both modern and functional with hits of colour and warmth.

Defining SpacesBeing an open-concept design, we needed to define the various spaces on the main floor; however, we felt that any walls - even glass - would feel obtrusive. We custom designed the front hall bench to separate the entrance from the dining area. A great solution for a tricky spot without obstructing the view from the magnificent front windows.
