This project designed by Asquith Architecture began as a simple addition to the rear of a small two storey detached house in the Bedford Park area of North Toronto for an empty-nest couple (and their adorable poodle, Louis). Through the design and construction process the renovation expanded to include a full renovation weaving a new and modern aesthetic into the existing house. The result was a series of rejuvenated spaces large enough for them to entertain their extended family, yet small enough to maintain more intimate spaces for two. Photography by Nanne Springer.

Nims Bezaitis Residence is a project designed by Paul McKean Architecture. This 3,200 square foot home was originally designed by Portland Mid-Century master John Storrs in 1959 for the Holtz family. Our goal for the renovation was simple – to carefully restore existing natural finishes while simultaneously upgrading all functional aspects of the home, including a modernized kitchen, bathrooms, family art studio and media room. Only 80 square feet was added to the home, slightly increasing the size of the kitchen. Photography by Chuck Spin.
Villa Black is a project designed by NAPUR Architects. The villa was built on one of the most beautiful locations of Budaliget. The flat site is located on a former airport field, in the exact center of the area, which previously functioned as the airport runway. The lot was completely empty – looking at it in its natural state one gets to see picturesque views with beautiful large trees all over the location. The area is ideally lit by the sun and it’s completely protected from the wind. Photography by Tamás Bujnovszky.

Chandos Lake Cottage is a project designed by Altius Architecture. Situated on the original Chandos Estates property, this cottage replaced an old single storey cottage that was hidden from view by a large perimeter hedge. The hedge was removed to reveal wonderful views of the lake and a new home was designed to take full advantage of those views and connect the cottage to the landscaped spaces around the cottage and to the dock on the waterfront.

This family summer house in Saint Tropez, France designed by SAOTA, is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Mediterranean Riviera architecture.
