So pristine

There’s not a pillow out of place at this sleek modern home in Toronto. Designed by local studio Cecconi Simone, the house is 8,657 square feet of clean, neutral-loving style—intentionally kept quiet and restrained to blend in with the neighborhood populated with early 20th-century homes.

The architects wanted to create a space that embodied contemporary elegance, where even the slightest of details—concealed ductwork, no bulkheads—gives the air of crisp expansiveness.

From the entrance, an art-filled hallway opens up to the gleaming all-white kitchen and double-height family room, where a massive glass wall look out onto the backyard, patio, and pool.

A floating staircase to the side leads to the pared-back master suite as well as the children’s bedrooms upstairs. Downstairs, the amenities keep on coming in the form of spa-like changing rooms for the pool, a gym, home theatre, climate-controlled cantina, and “music room” with walls of shelving filled with vinyl records.
