Located in beautiful Toronto, Canada, the Charcoal House by Atelier Rzlbd is another fantastic piece of architecture from the avant-garde firm. With smoky charcoal brickwork in plenty, this home is truly one of a kind.

Although this home may appear narrow, the house has much more distinct features on the inside compared to the exterior. The three-storey dwelling boasts many windows placed inside the facade, giving it a unique rampart feel. High ceilings, skylights and copious amounts of open space allow for a visually pleasing interior. This smoky abode was designed by Reza Aliabadi, who draws similarities to "a coconut - harsh and strong on the outside, but warm and milky white on the inside."

The 2,100 square foot home is a very bold take on modern design and architecture, with just the right amount of experimentation and expertise.
