For the March issue of Dwell, wrote this story about a spectacular apartment in one of the great modernist apartment buildings: Montreal’s Habitat 67, by Moshe Safdie. The story is essentially about the interior, which belongs to Byron Peart and Stefan Weisgarber – two fashion professionals who are collectively obsessed with Expo 67, contemporary furniture design, Mies and the Bauhaus. It is gorgeous. And the building, as I discovered last summer, is holding up beautifully.
And in the next issue: Blantyre House, by Toronto favourites Williamson Chong Architects. Or, specifically, the kitchen, which is entirely wrapped in a cladding of rift-cut white oak. It’s a rigorously detailed room that seems to make the owners very happy.
