Bernard's Small Space in Canadian Architect

Bernard's Small Space in Canadian Architect

Remember this light and bright apartment from our 2009 Smallest Coolest contest? The September 09 issue of Canadian Architect magazine recently profiled its owner, Bernard, who works as a Heritage Architect for the Saskatchewan government. The story gives the scoop on how he renovated his historic apartment to meet Canada's guidelines for the conservation of historic places...

Bernard used salvaged materials, including reclaimed Douglas Fir, to restore the 95-year-old apartment to its former glory while updating it with modern amenities like stainless steel appliances and a marble backsplash. The article also mentions his "whimsical display of mid-century modern chairs" hung on the wall, a detail that we also noticed and loved.

Congrats, Bernard!
