Doors Open Hamilton 2013 highlights

Recently I was fortunate to visit two locations during the Doors Open Hamilton weekend. I found the Chinese text in the TCA Architects office on the third floor of the former Dominion Furniture building. As always, I'm a sucker for pattern. The architects have brought a shabby building back to life, honouring details like the Chinese text.

For many years I admired Treble Hall, a gorgeous old building that was waiting for the right owner to rehabilitate it. I am grateful that the folks at Historia Building Restoration bought and are restoring it. Pictured are items found on site. Once again, the dot patterns in the colander and sausage stuffer caught my eye.
