Our friend and client Martin Hering's home is up for an Urban Design Award. His home is Hambly House. Its an incredible art deco home that Martin put love and care into restoring to its original glory. After reading the article I had no idea Hamilton had such incredible architecture! Check it out and vote please:
It's just one street in the west end of Hamilton, but over the past couple of years some very interesting construction projects have been happening at both ends of it.
At 183 Longwood Rd. S., the $100 million CANMET Materials Technology Laboratory officially opened in February to great fanfare. The building — with its 157 rooms and 145,000 square feet of space — is an important part of the McMaster Innovation Park, located on former Camco property.
Drive down the road to 170 Longwood Rd. N. and you'll find the oddest little house in the village. It's called Hambly House, and in a sea of Tudor-style homes, Hambly looks more like a ship. It's a full-fledged Art Deco, Bauhaus voyage into eccentricity. It was built in 1939 and its current owner spent more than $100,000 to bring it back to former glory.
