Here is the stunning house design in north Toronto. this house design by Belzberg Architects. 2013 this house won 2013 Ontario Association of Architects Design Excellence award. Very interesting design. The roof and walls that come out of the house break the house into proportions that are pleasant for the human eye. The abundance of plants surrounding the house gives the house a feeling of real nature even though built in a big city. According the architect: Designed for a large double lot in a premier neighbourhood in north Toronto, the project’s ambition is split between providing a space that can take advantage of the site’s abundant natural features and also serve as a hub for a growing international family.
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 interior layout of the house has been carefully crafted to provide an informal and inviting space with an understated sophistication. The architecture and landscape design at the front of the building have been choreographed to allow for an abundance of natural light and a feeling of airiness without sacrificing privacy. A simple, yet enduring material palette blends plaster and zinc cladding with various natural woods and stones.
