The term "smart home" might still conjure up images of the Jetsons' space-age pad, but how about this Cor-Ten-clad modern stunner in Toronto? Designed by local firm TACT Architecture, the boxy, 4,300-square-foot residence replaces a crumbling century-old house originally on the site and comes with all the connectivity a tech-savvy home built in 2015 ought to have. Everything, including lighting, audio, security, and air conditioning, is automated and can be controlled over WiFi via a smartphone or tablet.
Throughout the dwelling, high-tech features like built-in speakers in the ceilings mix seamlessly with warm touches like numerous wooden tables. It all looks rather sumptuous. Dwell has the full story and more photos.
