Multi-disciplinary atelier Ancerl Studio has designed a modern home in Toronto, Canada, and unique to the house, is a large 40 foot folding glass wall that folds open.

Spanning across the living room and the dining room, the large opening connects the interior spaces to the outdoors, expanding the livable space.

When closed, the glass walls provide an abundance of natural light to the interior spaces. Other interesting design details found in the living room are the two bi-fold pocket doors that open up and hide away, revealing the TV and open shelving, as well as the three-sided open flame custom fireplace, that can be enjoyed from not only the living room and dining room, but also the outdoor space when the wall is opened.

Let’s take a look around the rest of the home…

The Exterior

The design of the house includes a solid front facade, with a tucked away entryway, that afforded the client the privacy they desired.

The Front Door And Entryway

Welcoming visitors to the home is a 7-foot wide black-framed glass pivot door, that opens into the entryway furnished with a console table and a stool. The material palette in the home includes white walls, ceilings, warm wood millwork, and white ash engineered floors.

The Scotch Lounge And Home Office

Throughout the home, there are 14-foot ceilings, which can be seen in the open plan Scotch lounge and home office. A walnut accent wall showcases a pair of floor-to-ceiling, temperature-controlled wine fridges, and both open and closed storage for the home office.

The Dining Room

A large shelving unit separates the dining room from the Scotch lounge, while a set of bi-fold doors open to reveal a wet bar.

The Kitchen

In the kitchen, minimalist white cabinets line the walls, while a large island provides space for multiple stools. Hidden within the cabinetry is a dedicated coffee station.

The Swimming Pool And Landscaped Garden

The outdoor space has been landscaped with a variety of different areas, including a swimming pool and deck, a lounge area with an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, and a dining area.

The Stairs

Wood stairs connect the various levels of the home, with a black handrail that contrasts the white wall.

The Hallway

A hallway with a glass ceiling connects the top of the stairs to the bedrooms.

The Primary Bedroom

The primary bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows, and a sliding glass opens to a private outdoor space.

The En-Suite Bathroom

A wall of wood closets link the bedroom to the en-suite bathroom, which showcases a white vanity with large mirrors, a built-in bathtub, and a double shower with a glass surround.

The Guest Bedroom

In one of the other bedrooms, a glass door opens to a small balcony with tree views.
