This Toronto home, designed by Levitt-Goodman Architects, takes over where a body shop left off. In defiance of its industrial past, and surroundings, the residence boasts a lot of garden space and sun-tubes for its windowless rooms. I was struck by bannister's construction: the brass stand-offs and the bent-wood rail. I suspect it was a product of the a-lot-of-work-to-look-simple technique. Well worth it.
