[James Brittain - VEIL HOUSE - COVER IMG] Veil House/James Brittain


LocationMontreal, Canada

Winter in Canada is an exceptionally beautiful time for pictures. It’s tough on the hands, but snow and soft winter light have special qualities that can bring a project to life. A perforated ‘veil’ made of identical panels of weathered steel wraps this house in a residential suburb of Winnipeg. The panels peel back in places, creating new spaces underneath. The veil provides privacy and introduces light to interior - as well as creating a brooding presence in an otherwise conventional neighbourhood. The image was made on behalf of Winnipeg's 5468796 Architecture.
