It’s called the Integral House and has curves reminiscent of mathematical symbols. Following Stewart’s death in December of last year, the 18,000-square-foot home is now on sale for about $17,560,000 million through Sotheby’s.
The former McMaster University professor hired Howard Sutcliffe and Brigitte Shim of Shim-Sutcliffe Architects to build the four-bedroom house in Toronto. The five-level house cost $24 million and took six years to build. Some of the other unique features include a staircase with hand-blown blue glass surrounding it, heated limestone floors, an elevator, heated driveways and walkways, and ravine views.
Stewart was also a violinist (“I thought that it’s easier to be a mathematician whose hobby is music than a musician whose hobby is mathematics,” he said in a documentary about his life, Integral Man), and his love of music led him to incorporate a 200-person-capacity concert space into the structure. A number of events have been held there, including Philip Glass playing at a fundraiser. Stewart hosted organizations that reflected his views and interests; he was heavily involved in LGBT activism since the 1970s, according to The Daily Xtra. Before his death from multiple myeloma, Stewart said he hoped the benefit concerts would continue.
