I immediately recognized this house as one I had in a precedent study folder... i have pictures of the interior, but for some reason when I photocopied the images I cut out the name of the magazine I copied it from.  The interior is equally tectonic...lots of steel.  The blog above claims it's in Rosemont in Toronto... but the only house that comes up is Shim Sutcliffe's house there.  Wish I'd photocopied better way back in the late 90s or so.

whoever it was, it looks like they were looking at some coop himmelblau projects...

looks too cookie cutter to be a Sutcliff design

No, they were clearly looking at Corbusier. Corbusier used walls and it looks like this architect did too.

Architect is Donald Mckay. Completed 1992.  The architect is now a professor at the university of waterloo's school of architecture.

This TO Built webpage has great cataloging of buildings, i've used it a number of times looking for info about buildings.
