Briarcliffe Walking Tour - Heritage Ottawa / by Elie Bourget

Big thanks to Danielle Jones and James Laish for leading the Heritage Ottawa walking tour of Briarcliffe yesterday.   Their stewardship of our modernist heritage is inspiring to say the least.  Click the slideshow below  for photos of some the homes.   These houses were designed by a who's who of Canadian Modernists: Walter Schreier, Alex Heaton, James Strutt, Paul Schoeler, Brian Barkham, Matthew Stankiewicz, Matthew W. Poray-Swinarski, Tim Murray, and more.  A small few were taken from CMHC small house designs, including a variation on design 764 at 4 Briarcliffe Drive.   Too learn more about the architects and the homes, have a look at the Briarcliffe Heritage Conservation District Study and Plan here.
