6 Evergreen Gardens Toronto

House of the Week: 6 Evergreen Gardens

This house at 6 Evergreen Gardens, in what some refer to as Bennington Heights, looks like the kind of place Angelina Jolie would run circles around in a film, taking aim at other mysteriously spandex-garbed ninjas. (Seriously, how and why are they always dressed in those catsuits? Where do they buy them?). The design is quite stunning and thoroughly modern, with few frills and adornments. It's honest; it says what it means, you know? The facade is a combination of brick, cedar and glass, making for an arresting textural palette, and the inside also pays homage to that ever-present duality of warmth vs. frigidness for a striking effect.

GOOD FOR

People whose self-esteem needs bolstering. People who like to sip scotch and stare pensively out of windows without many thoughts flowing through their whiskey-addled brains. Angelina Jolie. Less cynically, those for whom modern architecture matters (and who are willing and able to pay for the privilege).
