Wood and stone combined to pay homage to the surrounding environment.

As featured on, Studio Paolo Ferrari – a Toronto-based architect firm – combined wood and granite in this glorious retreat as a way to pay homage to the surrounding environment.

“We wanted to create a place of respite from the intensity of city life and also to build as sensitively as we could, complementing, but never overwhelming, the surrounding environment,” said Studio Paolo Ferrari.
