World-Class Art Meets Luxurious Living in This Toronto Home

2023 Best of Year Winner for Large City House and Residential Staircase

At 25,000 square feet, the house in Toronto, Canada belonging to a philanthropic couple is certainly expansive. That’s partly because it has to serve not only as a family home but also as the setting for large charity events. Hence these grand spaces designed by Burdifilek and warmed with ultra-luxurious materials and contemporary artwork. In the great room, for instance, walls are clad in cashmere, and multiple seating areas are anchored by a custom silk rug. Another gathering area is the airy solarium, its leafy potted trees capped by a glass ceiling allowing for additional verdant views of an exterior vine-covered wall. Green turns to creamy white at the three-story limestone staircase, which spirals around a custom 30-foot-long pendant fixture made of molded-glass cabochons.
