Today is the Modern House Tour, hosted annually by the West Vancouver Museum. For those of you who missed out on this sold-out event, you can still enjoy a tour of one of British Columbia’s first and most influential Modernist Homes: The Land Conservancy is hosting an open house today at B.C. Binning House. If you have not been to this inspiring place, you owe it to yourself to make the trip today.

This is the home that artist Bertram Charles Binning designed for himself and his beloved wife, Jessie, in 1941. He had recently returned from a life-changing trip to Europe, where he studied with artist Henry Moore, and was strongly affected by the modernist architectural movements of the day. On his way back he visited MOMA New York’s ground breaking exhibition on Modernist Home Design. Here in Vancouver, one of his close friends and design colleagues was architect, Ned Pratt. All these influences are apparent in his home design, but there’s an element of poetic design that is distinctly his own.
B.C Binning House is located at 2968 Mathers Crescent, West Vancouver. The open house is hosted today from 12 noon til 4pm by the Land Conservancy, with admission by donation.
We’d like to say “Thank you” to Christy Feaver for a lovely evening, with good company, and gorgeous jewelry. Her trunk show was warm & relaxed and it was such a treat to be able to enjoy the full array of all her beautiful designs.
For those of you who missed the event, we still have a good selection of her new collection at tartooful. Her designs are so comfortable, classic, wearable and beautiful, do come by and take a peek.
