Modern Residence Merging Intimacy with Social Interaction Needs
This imposing modern residence was designed by Superkül Architects and is located in Toronto, Canada. According to the architects, “SPLIT House” borrowed its name during the architecture development process: “Split in plan and section, the parti of the house allows for a flood of light to the centre. The house is designed as space for spectacle – the owners are regular hosts of their large network of friends and family, and they wanted a place that could feel grand. The trick with this was to make a house that could also feel intimate for when they were on their own. A rich brown wood floor that connects with the ipe deck outside serves as a counterpoint to the high ceilings of the main space, and connects the inside to the outside. This, in combination with the design of smaller more intimate spaces and moments throughout the ground floor make for a house that is equally good for two as it is for 30.” The interiors of the modern residence allow unobstructed views of the surrounding landscapes as well as of the entertainment area located by the pool.
