To celebrate 50 years of Western Living, we're digging through the archives and sharing our favourite throwback designs.
Mining through 50 years of editorial archives is a trip, even for someone like myself, who's been with the magazine in various capacities since 2003. I decided to start with the archives from that year, when I was still a junior editor, and see those spaces with new eyesand I was immediately rewarded with this delightful discovery.
Back then, budding architecture students Todd MacAllen and Stephanie Forsythe were praised by writer Trevor Boddy for their first project out of schoolthis lovely Galiano Island home they designed for Mac-Allen's parents. It was an auspicious beginning for a duo that would go on that same year to form Molo, the famed industrial design company that has created, among other products, the softwall, which is now a part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
