While most of the contemporary structures look simply stunning, the real challenge lies in turning them into cozy and comfortable homes that are a lot more than eye candy. The Crescent Road House in Rosedale, Toronto manages to achieve this with its pristine white interiors, inviting wooden exteriors and ambient lighting solutions. The designers used stone, glass and wood judiciously along with the right blend of natural and artificial lighting to create a place that meets the demands of those who live in it. With an atrium that organizes the homes design and provides with adequate ventilation, this is one home you would not hesitate to step into! [Superkul Architects]
