Canadian design rules


Architecture can never surpass the vastness and absolute majesty of the Canadian landscape. So in consequence architecture, in Canada, is irrelevant; architecture from a design point of view.  So there! I said it, now what?  This rule is irrefutable and what it leaves you with is architecture of modesty.  If you are designing a home it should be quite modest and simple.  Your home shouldn’t be a reproduction of anything or a copy or gaudy temple.

So where do we go from here? Simple we draw from Canada’s past for inspiration. We look to farm houses, WW2 veteran’s homes, grain silos, train stations, fishing shacks, hockey rinks, aboriginal design and above all WOOD construction. It’s the only thing we have that is truly ours. The world has Masonry; Canada has wood and lots of it so celebrate it. Just don’t put it on the outside of your home because it will be a maintenance nightmare. Seriously just use it to build your home and above all use it inside your home. There’s nothing like aged oak paneling in a foyer or a birch kitchen, don’t forget hard wood floors with radiant heat of course.

Today you can mix design like a DJ mixes music; a la carte and with little resistance. It’s funny how some folks think MODERN is a minimalist box. How is that modern when it was invented over a hundred years ago?  Some would say modern is mixing landscaping with architecture like plant filled envelopes and green roofs, but even that’s been done.  Berm homes and ivy have been around long before this trend came around again. And so there you have it; design is nothing more than fashion.  It comes and goes and there is very little that is truly modern. If modern means something new anyway.

If your home should say anything at all it should say nothing. It’s you and your family that should say everything and the house well you should try to be out of it as often as possible.  Be in perpetual motion because you can and because if you can you should. Get your heart pumping don’t rely on your car, rely on your bike and above all plant a vegetable garden and dig in the dirt.  If we remove ourselves from the earth we loose our soul in silly irrelevant things that don’t matter in the end.

Your home should be enough to shelter you and to carry you over until the weather is hospital or at least tolerable. Excess is unhealthy and creating spaces that promote sedentary behaviour is not in your favour.  In the end you should maximize your time outside and covet a comfortable space that can shelter you when Mother Nature is cranky. Once you maximize your savings by building an adequate home. Spend your savings on ski lift tickets or ice fishing, my favourite is at Saint Anne de la Parade, bring the family and friends and have a blast in February.
