A historical Toronto home gets a sleek new design thanks to architect Andre D’Elia of Superkül. See how he respected the home’s old bones while bringing it into the 21st century for clients Carol and Craig Lowery.

Andre boosted the home’s curb appeal by adding modern elements to the façade. A wood door leads into the entryway, where a wall of closets offers plenty of storage. The modern kitchen features flush cabinets and camouflaged appliances, and conveniently flows into the living room. A skylight well connects the three floors, offering a stream of natural light to each level. A custom furniture suite and an office with a bay window shine in the second floor principal bedroom. The square-footage continues onto the third floor roof space, which has access to the balcony. Oak wood maintains warmth throughout the modern home.
