More Information

This house is an excellent example of mid-century modernist design in Winnipeg. Designed by architect Ken Snider to house himself and his family, 806 Kebir Place makes good use of a small lot. Among the elements of the structure's design that stand out are its flat roof, its elevated exterior deck area (shaded by an eave), and large areas of glass, comprised of ribbon and plate windows. A sun room located on the south side of the building's kitchen provides additional light.
