Homeowner Wendy Davis shares a look inside her architecturally important Toronto home with cool, modern style. Originally designed by starchitect Barton Myers, who worked on the Art Gallery of Ontario’s 1993 expansion, the Yorkville house was brought up to date while preserving its original character by Jodi and Andrew Batay-Csorba, who studied under Myers at UCLA. Wendy further modernized the space with her minimalist style, using her curated art collection and pieces she picked up while travelling to bring personality to the light-filled, 4,000-square-foot home.
