Doors Open Ottawa

This weekend is Doors Open Ottawa, an annual event that attracts visitors to some of the city’s most interesting heritage buildings.

You can visit us this year at The Blackburn Building (223 Somerset Street West), between 10am and 6pm Saturday and Sunday.

Blackburn

Lobby

“Built by Henry Blackburn and completed in 1936, the Blackburn is unique in its French Deco style. Designed by local Architect Lucien Leblanc, this decorative site features a five storey atrium, and wrap-around balconies. These are rare features for Canadian architecture of the period but commonly found in Europe or South America as the style maximizes natural light in the space. Historically built as a suite, fully furnished building for visiting dignitaries and politicians.” – City of Ottawa
