Shortlisted: Luxury Residence Canada Award

The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024

Martha Franco Architecture & Design has seamlessly amalgamated heritage and contemporary elements, transforming the venerable 1912 residence into a distinctive and modern abode. Through the ingenuity of  Martha Franco, the residence stands as a testament to the harmonious fusion of traditional design and contemporary sensibilities, embodying timeless elegance through meticulous detailing and avant-garde lighting designs.

This opulent dwelling, spanning 11,800 square feet across three main living floors, is flanked by an upper attic space and a storage cellar below. The heritage framework, provided by gallery windows and vaulted ceilings, imparts a unique character to each space within the home. A captivating promenade, commencing at the entrance vestibule on the main floor, seamlessly connects distinct areas.

Martha Franco Architecture & Design’s vision is eloquently manifested in the dining room, where custom-designed furnishings by MFA&D, anchored by a resplendent Italian marble table and a magnificent chandelier crafted by Barlas Baylar, adorn the space. This room serves as an embodiment of the firm’s ethos, engaging in a demonstrative dialogue between classical design and contemporary relevance.

The living room, characterized by the sophistication of custom contemporary furnishings in opulent Italian velvets and silks, exemplifies the firm’s commitment to a luxurious living experience. The adjacent breakfast nook, featuring a stunning chandelier by Gabriel Scott, seamlessly transitions into a contemporary kitchen that masterfully blends fresh materials with timeless heritage design.

This high-end residence, designed by Martha Franco Architecture & Design, encapsulates the essence of enjoyable family living while instilling a sense of timelessness, making the design more transcendent and durable. The interplay between new architecture and the existing structure creates a cohesive connection, underscoring the vision of seamless integration.

The curated contemporary art collection within the residence complements and enriches the overall design, creating a symbiotic relationship between the art pieces and the architectural and interior elements. Martha Franco Architecture & Design has not only transformed a historic residence but has also curated an immersive and cohesive environment where each element converges to define a contemporary yet enduring living experience.
