REINVENTING A TRADITIONAL EDWARDIAN NEAR LAKE ONTARIO

When a family couldn’t part with a traditional Edwardian, their architect introduced a world of design inspiration instead. Architect Drew Mandel updated a house in Toronto to look modern and cozy. The clients desired a warm material base for the interior so Mandel used American walnut for the flooring, millwork, and staircase. Loire limestone covers the landing below the steps and Calacatta marble clads the kitchen counters and island.
