Designed by Paul de Ruiter Architects the creative private residence is crafted in just glass steel and concrete and the focus here is firmly on the view outside rather than the décor indoors.
It is the kitchen and dining area on the lower level that are connected visually with the rear yard thanks to the large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors even as the second level features a smart and beautiful family zone that overlooks the lush green canopy outside. Sensible in its design and visually dramatic this striking house nestled on the ravine of Cedarvale Park is an absolute showstopper!
A sculptural staircase connects the three floors with the kitchen dining area and living space being housed on the ground level and a gorgeous study and wraparound terrace on the third floor.
Move to the front and the distinct and dark external piers give the street façade a unique identity that lets it stand out from its neighboring structures. With living space that is separated from the large kitchen and dining area by a double-sided fireplace the interior uses as few partitions as possible.
The weathered and metallic appeal of the Cor-Ten Steel façade does give the lovely residence a uniqueness that draws your attention instantly even as the rest of the house embraces a far more familiar contemporary style.
