World-Class Art Meets Luxurious Living in This Toronto Home

2023 Best of Year Winner for Large City House

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.
