The Advantages of the Modern Home

Often times we are inclined to think of the modern home as a bit cold and unwelcoming.  There are times when a streamlined aesthetic can be quite sensible. This Toronto Residence by Belzberg creates an uncluttered environment which allows for open views to a natural setting while providing shelter from sun and snow with a series of balconies and trellis shade elements on the exterior.
