The Slow Home Movement

Designers in the Slow Home movement are creating homes made for health and comfort rather than resale value.

Housebrand, a Calgary, Canada-based design firm that specializes in the Slow Home philosophy, remodeled this 1912 Victorian for clients Catherine and Aaron Montgomery. Changes included removing a countertop and installing an island to open up the century-old kitchen’s floorplan and make it more functional for the Montgomerys and their two young daughters. They also opened the kitchen to include a rarely used formal dining room, which is now an everyday eating and entertaining space.
