This Calgary Architect’s Artsy Build is a Vibrant Slice of Modernist Heaven

Calgary’s Kayla Browne may be an architect, but she doesn’t conform to the stereotype: She doesn’t habitually dress head to toe in black. “How boring,” says Browne, principal at BOLD Workshop Architecture and senior associate at Sturgess Architecture. Not only does Browne rock red lipstick, her closet is filled with Crayola-bright outfits — colour-coordinated, natch. She brings the same irreverence to her home, an artsy build in Calgary’s historic Inglewood neighbourhood that she shares with her husband, Nick Tumu, and cats, Stink and Tina Turner. Spacious and lofty, with a rippled metal exterior, a catwalk and thrusts of colour, the 3,821-square-foot home is a contemporary charmer. In the rear, there’s also a detached 490-square-foot laneway house. A demi-courtyard off the kitchen, meanwhile, offers outdoor respite — though with an interior like this, why go anywhere? Tour this stunner via video here.
