If you were house hunting for a sleek and modern home in Toronto would you even look twice at this old industrial building?
Someone with a good eye and a vision did, and then completely flipped this unassuming building into a luxurious hidden paradise.
Executed by Taylor Smyth Architects, the property - already a residence but formerly a machine shop - underwent a substantial transformation into new stylish digs.
Here some snaps of the completed interior:
The contrast between the factory facade and the lavish stream-lined interior is astounding.
The white walls emphasize the warm wood, with its strong linear pattern inside and out.
We find the bamboo hanging room divider and washroom cabinetry dreamy.
The garden, a secluded niche, serves as an extension of the living room. How's that for a lush urban slice of heaven?
This stunning design earned Taylor Smyth Architects the 12th Annual 'Best of Canada' Design Award.
And illustrates the adage "You can’t judge a book by it’s cover!"
