Interior Design — Open-Concept Modern Victorian Home Makeover

On, Mazen El-Abdallah of Toronto’s Mazen Studio tours through his Victorian home turned open-concept loft. He hired a contractor …



  • Love it and its also the first time I liked an oversized mirror with a simple frame in any space. I would have splurged on a solid surface counter though in the kitchen.

  • Good design and space planning is timeless. Well done

  • is the mirror custom in the entry vestibule custom?

  • Very beautiful and well organized

  • Watching this in 2018 and I'm genuinely surprised with how well the design has aged. Of course some elements haven't but the kitchen style for example is still being done today.

  • Looks sooo gorgeous I super love everything the colour palette superb:)♥

  • Why every house must have a Tom Ford book ???

  • What a beautiful home! Thank you for sharing it with us. 🙂 I especially love the feel of your bathroom.

  • His explanation was the best part for me.

  • usual type of design but atleast it's a liveable functional one, not too white and or too made up.

  • This is a great makeover. I don't share the opinion that a Victorian home was ruined. It's not as if it was preservation quality. Why regard it as a sacred cow? It's not how most people live today.

  • Why not just build your own modern home instead of ruining a Victorian

  • this is my choice of home. great job.

  • Love it!!! 😍❤️🙌🏻

  • Why would you choose a victorian home if your're going to gut the place and ruin the victorian feeling?

  • omg this is so amazing, the living room is so multifunctional XD

  • Awesome job man !!…love your home, space planning and taste to their best !!!

  • It does give a nice office feel. Although its not as warm/cozy as I like, I appreciate the space; the gallery wall is well organized, the bookshelves on either side of the sofa (flanking the gallery wall and the sofa) gives it a nice balance and uniformity that I think an office needs. For a cook/baker the kitchen is not functional (but its very clean looking). The bathroom is beautiful; I imagine he likes that very Scandinavian open floor shower feel (rather than the sectioned off shower cube. The contractor definitely did a cool job with opening up the place. 🙂 It was fun to watch. 🙂  

  • Where are the cream armchair/dining chairs from?

  • Great use of the space ! Wonderful style👍

  • This is such a nice home I think I wanna hire him

  • The house's original structure and detailing has been completely defiled. This is just awful. :/

  • Fantastic, stylish bachelor pad! Love the dark, warm kitchen and my favorite space is the bathroom – would update the daybed.
