The compact facade of this four-bedroom house in an upscale neighbourhood of Toronto, Canada, belies an expansive 2,800-square-metre interior of barely-contained effulgence. Configured in an L-shape hinged around a sculptural spiral staircase, its three floors back onto a terraced garden, offering generous views through expansive glass curtain walls.

Local architects Audax teamed up with Pencil Design to detail the light-filled interiors in an opulent, mid-mod revival style. The space is characterized by bold, contemporary lines and strictly curated spaces that overflow with such rich textures and materials as silk, marble, limestone, oak and brass. The ensuite master tub – carved from a single piece of meteor-like stone – is a real showstopper.
