Built by custom home builder Farhad Kazmian (ABOND Homes) and architect Tania Bortolotto (BORTOLOTTO), the home was literally designed to be “the antithesis of the square jar.”

Bortolotto provided a solution by means of a modified L-shaped A-frame house rooted in mathematics.

The location would be fantastic for a family with excellent public and private schools nearby as well as great green spaces including the Alex Muir Memorial Gardens and Sunnybrook Park…not that you would need to go far for your leisure.
