DeJong Design Associates tour the Trend House

We were delighted to host a visit from Calgary architecture and design firm DeJong Design Associates at the Calgary Trend House last Friday. Founder Marvin DeJong and his wife April (who also happen to live in Elboya) brought the team to the Trend House to spend a couple of hours going through the house and talking about all things architecture and Mid-Century Modern.

Having a thorough understanding of the history and development of residential architecture in Calgary, it was very revealing to us to hear their perspective in terms of how unique and ahead of it’s time a number of elements in the house were for the time. A great way to spend a Friday afternoon!
