Inside Avenue Road’s Owner Stephan Weishaupt Home

Heading one of Canada’s preeminent furniture brands can come in helpful when it comes to envisioning your own house, as Avenue Road’s Stephan Weishaupt found out when he started on a design project concerning the alteration of an old Toronto townhouse.

Weishaupt collaborated with local architects Chapi Chapo Design on a whole overhaul of an abandoned Edwardian structure. Working collectively to add new life to the old house, the team studied the original building’s architecture in order to consolidate its structure in the interiors, explain the architects. They also aspired to regard their client’s requirements and character.

‘I was initially thinking of moving into a larger home and I realized that it wasn’t really what I wanted or needed,’ he explains. ‘What was more interesting to me was to work with the artisans I collaborate with at Avenue Road. I aimed to have some unexpected and inspirational pieces that would allow them to demonstrate how far their talents could be taken. I wanted to focus on the details to refine a home I already love.’

The architect’s answer included designing an open space for hosting – something fun, that ‘stimulates the senses’ – while also representing a group of individual spaces, which would balance the public areas and work as sanctuaries to escape into following the owner’s active daily life.

Highlighting Weishaupt’s notable art and furniture collection – without ‘being ostentatious’ – was also central to the design.
