From Issue No. 233 | September 26, 2014

Briarcliffe is Ottawa's newest Heritage Conservation District, and the first in Canada to recognize mid-20th Century modern architecture. This enclave of 23 unique homes began in 1959, when partners sharing modernist ideals of living in harmony with nature purchased 20 acres of rocky, topographically challenging land near the Ottawa River. Progressive architects of the day designed experimental homes in keeping with design covenants established to ensure visual cohesion of the neighbourhood and preservation of its spectacular natural landscape.
Steep roads; flat walking shoes recommended.
GUIDE: Danielle Jones is an artist and designer, modernist architecture buff and Briarcliffe resident.
