This Sophisticated Family Home Will Feed Your Design Inspiration

People tend to fall in love with homes for a specific reason, but pizza rarely tops the list. It was a picturesque wood-burning pizza oven that sold Moez and Marissa Kassam on their family-friendly house in central Toronto. The Kassams, who have two daughters, will host anywhere between eight and 30 people, several times a month.

And so, with designer Montana Burnett leading the project and Peter Robinson of Sherwood Custom Homes overseeing the renovation, the house was transformed into an open-concept space ready for spontaneous dinner parties or just hanging out en famille. “Now, everyone is watching and enjoying and eating and drinking at the same time,” says Moez.
