More Information

Burton Stovel designed this house for his family in Birchwood Heights. Stovel worked from this home for a number of years after leaving Frank R. Lount to establish his own practice. The two-storey residence had an exterior finish of vertical cedar planks and brick veneer. Plywood panels were used alongside window openings on both the north and south facing facades. The home was later demolished to make room for the Moray bridge which now connects Silver Heights to the Assiniboine Park area.

Burton Stovel graduated from the University of Manitoba as Gold Medalist, Bachelor of Architecture, in 1947. Upon graduation, Mr. Stovel began his career with Frank R. Lount and Son Ltd. The company was active in the development of Silver Heights, a new residential community in St. James. In 1968 Stovel left Frank R. Lount and established his own design and construction firm, A.B. Stovel Ltd.
