WAG of­fers chance to ex­plore mod­ern homes

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

WHILE the Win­nipeg Free Press, through its City Beau­ti­ful se­ries, stud­ies how ar­chi­tec­ture shaped the DNA of the city, the Win­nipeg Art Gallery is of­fer­ing a tour of some the city’s most mod­ern build­ings. The eighth an­nual Home Tour, set up through the Vol­un­teer As­so­ciates of the WAG, is a self-guided tour of five Win­nipeg homes on Sun­day, Sept. 14, be­tween 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tick­ets, which cost $35 and in­clude a guide­book for the tour, can be re­served on­line at wag.ca/home­tour or in per­son at the WAG, McNally Robin­son Book­sellers, or Blue Hills De­sign. The five ar­chi­tec­turally no­table homes that have opened their doors in­clude two that were built ear­lier this year. A home at 315 Bower Blvd., in Charleswood, by ar­chi­tect Clayton Salkeld of De­sign-Built and another at 59 Ren­frew St., in River Heights, by Do­vide E. Secter of Secter As­so­ciates Ltd., are among the high­lights. Other houses on the tour are a 2010-built home at 51 Ren­frew St., de­signed by Peter Har­graves of Sput­nik Ar­chi­tec­ture, and a 2012 house at 104 Har­vard Ave., in Cres­cent­wood by George Cib­inel Ar­chi­tects Ltd. The fifth house on the tour is at 1 Palk Rd., which is also in Cres­cent­wood. It was de­signed by John Patkau and De­nis Jes­son and built in 1973 and 1974.

1 Palk Rd. in Cres­cent­wood is part of an­nual Home Tour.
