“During the whole period of design and construction Pier Paolo was steady, reliable and efficient in meeting all our demands and even surpassing our expectations. He was rigorous in supervising the construction in its various aspects, including the financial. He was always ready to hear our comments, adapt his ideas and mediate effectively in sometimes heated discussions about design and details. We are extremely satisfied with the results of all the work that we have done with Dr. Alberghini. We intend to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to any individual or company that is considering him for architectural work.”

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Size: 9,000 sq. ft.

This formal residence, located in one of the most prestigious areas on the outskirts of Toronto, was designed and built with the intention of hosting royalty and diplomats from foreign countries, as well as accommodating large parties for musical performances, both indoors and outdoors on the terraces and in the gardens.

The circular driveway with formal gardens is planned on a split-ramp system, and the six-car garage is completely hidden from view of the main entrance. The two-storey, skylighted vestibule, with a gallery bridge above, leads to the formal living room. This space opens to a terrace overlooking the gardens and the pool in a continuous succession of spaces, fulfilling the entertaining requirements of the client.

The plan also achieves privacy for the five family members with a vertical separation of the sleeping quarters. The lower level with walk-out to the gardens and pool area includes an entertainment centre, exercise and spa facilities, and servants’ quarters.
