More Information

759 Henderson Highway – originally Kildonan Hardware and currently housing a dentist's office – is a distinctly modernist address. The building features a design by local firm at the cutting edge of Winnipeg mid-century architectural practice, Waisman Ross and Associates. Comprised largely of glass, the west-facing street facade is topped by a deep overhanging eave held aloft by five exposed wood beams.
