Century-Old Toronto Home Gets a Totally New Look

This century-old Toronto home looks nothing like the structure that have stood on this Earth for a hundred years.  made sure it got a shiny new modernized aesthetic with protruding square windows and metal siding.

If the exterior shows a few signs of age with its dated red brick body, the interior designed by Tanya Yeung at  is contemporary modern through and through. Cascading landscape by  also adds a touch of modernity to its immediate outdoors.

Numerous windows, including the ones in the bathroom, allow to harvest plenty of daylight, and illuminate every room. There is even a letterbox window between a bedroom and bathroom, which lets the light travel further, and creates a more open atmosphere in both rooms.

Open floor plan makes the interior change and flow very organically. Wooden floors tie the glossy grey kitchen and a modern dining room together in a very neat way. Thanks to a folding glass door, the dining room visually continues into the backyard terrace furnished with a hanging chair, a sofa, and a firepit.

Each area features its own artwork, although the house doesn’t have that museum or gallery feel to it. Transitional areas such as staircase walls are given special attention. You can notice that these are probably the only bright accent in the house, but it still feels rather lively. This is not only due to odd greenery, however. Wood texture as well as plenty of natural light do a great job of brightening up spaces. (Photography by Arnaud Marthouret)
