Huge windows let plenty of light into the kitchen, and a sky-lit, 30-foot-tall atrium rains light into every corner of the Glen Road home renovated by Toronto architects Superkül.

Light penetration was handled two ways. First, small pairs of windows on the front and rear elevations were replaced with single large openings. The big move, however, was to cut away floor space on levels two and three to create a dramatic, sky-lit, 30-foot-tall atrium that rains photons into every corner of the home.

Tying the whole composition together are big, white-oak screens on every floor. Viewed from the kitchen, the screen is opaque; move closer, and the slats reveal the staircase.
