Residence, Winnipeg, Canada, 1963
first prairie houses were designed for a builder/ contractor and his
friend, a structural engineer.
seemed to me that in the long winters of this enormous, flat
landscape, the architecture had to be bold with strongly stepped geometry.
of redwood were used, treated with newly invented porous Swedish
sealant which allowed the cladding to "breathe".
clients have moved on and the new resident families have made
contact in seeking advice as to how to enhance and maintain their
homes within the spirit in which they were first designed and
built. Very gratifying indeed!
