Pied-à-terre is a compact condo situated in Downtown Toronto’s densely populated Bloor Street corridor in Yorkville, surrounded by chic shopping and fine dining. The design responds to the urban conditions of the neighbourhood through a series of simple, custom design moves, all confined in a tight 900 sq. ft. shell.

Designed for a Hong Kong couple who visits their children studying in Canada, custom white oak wall panels define the entry and dining areas that lead into the main living space, which flows freely from kitchen to the dining room, to the family lounge. A custom solid oak table is supported on oil rubbed bronze legs and framed by a custom bench made of oak, bronze, and leather. The bench morphs seamlessly into a vertical display unit made of oak and mirrors, with bronze frames and trims. The unit becomes a composition in itself and is the main feature of the pied-à-terre.

​The kitchen is a tight gallery plan flanked in a white palette of Calacatta marble walls and counters. Intense Venetian blue marble walls drape the narrow bathrooms in an explosion of colour, blending the veins and fissures of rich blue, grey and white. Original watercolour artwork by Berlin-based artist Marc Bowditch adds an urban intensity in some moments, and introspective calm in others, to a home tucked in the bustling core of Toronto.​
