See The Light,

As June Shines Bright

As the days draw out, and light fills more hours than not, we are reminded of the role that light plays in our lives, in terms of supplying emotional and physical energy.

However, sometimes an...

In today's marketplace, we think it's integral to exercise caution in choosing the right condominium...

Although I originally embarked on the launch of this new site to indulge my healthy obsession of all things housing, I've discovered there's a greater joy and satisfaction in its fast evolution as a Paid Internship and Mentorship Program for young students enrolled in the fields of Architecture, Landscape, Interior Design, Housing Products, and - hopefully (any students out there?) - those fascinated with the Canadian History of Art and...
