Interior windows, a glass panel and a skylight flood a stairwell inside Tesseract House in natural light. The Etobicoke home is defined by asymmetrical shapes and the interplay of light and shadows. Read more through the link in bio. Photo by @ryanfungphoto
Rain or shine, this Douglas-fir clad living room by @_benhomes is the coziest spot in the house. Featured in our New Homes & Condos issue, this #hyggehome was inspired by Mid-Century Modern cues (think teak furniture, an open-tread central staircase, and private courtyard ) but built by — and for — a this-century family. Follow the link in bio for an expanded tour.

An angled, cedar-clad ceiling is a fitting choice for this nature-inspired living room. Designed as a cottage-y retreat in the middle of the city, the @greatlakestudio house (on the cover of our Best New Homes issue ) is full of surprises. For example: this serene family room is set among the treetops on the third floor. Follow the link in our profile for more inspiration.

When outdoorsy architects and avid cyclists Rick Galezowski and Maggie Bennedsen decided to shed their nomadic ways to focus on life at home with their son, they bought an old teardown near Ossington, and used the rebuild to capture what they love most about life in the saddle — an immersive connection with nature. Tour this masterful urban lodge by @greatlakestudio through the link in our bio.

In our latest Best New Homes & Condos issue, we shared a residential space that has recently inspired us – a stairwell with sapele curves and views for days. It was just a taste of this biophilic design by @dubbeldamarch — and because Garden Circle House has so much flavour, we thought we’d show you how the whole home comes together around this show-stopping feature, and connects to its surrounding environment.

An ethereal staircase of white oak treads and powdered white aluminum slats are the focal point in this @guidocostantinoprojects renovation in Roncy. Where there was once a hulking L-shaped stairwell, there is now sunshine. “It was important to make it light,” says Costantino. “Almost as if it were floating.” Tap the link in bio for more.

Flanked with thickets of under-lit hydrangea, dwarf Korean lilac, dogwood and serviceberry, this walkway by @joelloblaw leads to a comfortable outdoor room defined by cedar slat walls.

In a high rise condo on Bay Street, @taylorsmytharch created intimacy - and warmth - in the dining room by wrapping the ceiling in custom millwork. The white oak creates a “dialogue of scales” in the otherwise cookie-cutter space. Read the full story through the like in our bio. Photo by Tom Arban.

Hollace Cluny’s new showroom on 245 Davenport Road is a trove of eclectic treasures, as we discovered on a recent visit. “The hunt is half the fun,” says owner Susan Fowlie, who stocks awesome pieces like the Bubble light (shown here ), alongside arty finds you won’t see elsewhere.

When renters @brandilynnesm and @justinaguilar moved into a 69 square metre apartment in Liberty Village, it was clear that some of their earlier decorating habits would have to go. “A lot of the original furniture pieces we had were black and white (the typical “minimal Scandinavian” aesthetic ) and left the concrete space feeling a bit too sterile and lifeless,” the newly engaged couple shared. Find out how they transformed their snug concrete box into an enviable retreat though our link in bio.
Nestled in the upper plateau of a lush ravine, Bala House – a new build by @wwincto – balances awe-inspiring space with functionality. Wrap-around Sapele Mahogany and glass sliding doors neatly tuck away to reveal a cantilevered corner in the sunken living room, making the forested rear yard a seemingly natural extension of the home.

Toronto designers @joycharbonneau and @derekmcleod know how to make an entrance. Pictured above: their Queen West mudroom featuring the Hang Around coat rack, designed by the couple for @karaktercopenhagen and McLeod’s CNC-cut “tufted” bench. Tour the rest of this DIY haven through our link in bio.

Modern architects have always admired a good #courtyardhouse , but the concept was often dismissed for northern climates. So when @studiojunction resolved to build one for themselves, they looked to southern Europe and Asia, where walled-in spaces are far more common. Now complete, their family home - in a converted warehouse -perfectly demonstrates just how appealing it is to have the outdoors inside.🌿 Full story through the link in our profile.
