The homeowners and designers deliberated about where to put the fireplace (no interior wall was suitable) and lighted on the idea of a custom spherical flue, dramatically reaching to the double height ceiling. The fireplace is custom, in marble.

A limb of the precious old walnut tree is visible to the left.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The homeowners deliberated about where to put the fireplace, because no interior wall was suitable. They went with a custom spherical flue that reaches dramatically to the double-height ceiling. An old walnut tree in front of the house has protected heritage status, which prevented the couple from building outward. Instead they added extra width at the rear of the house, a rarity for downtown Toronto's narrow lots.Lamp: Noguchi
