                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1996

                      About the owner: Stuart is originally from Forestburg, Alberta and moved in 1981 from Calgary to Penticton to take over the long established photography studio McDonalds Photography. Del was born and raised in Penticton and after working and raising her family in Vancouver and Prince Rupert returned in 1983 to take over Hair World. The two first met in 83, and worked together on several joint shows and exhibitions featuring their complimentary talents. In 1999 they joined together in love and work and have operated their businesses from the property where they live. Together, they have now built the studio of their dreams on the same property as their home. Studio Del is Del's hair salon and art studio on the top floor (Del earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 2001) and Stuart Bish Photography occupies the main floor and basement of the beautiful new building. Del's brother, Brian Nelson and architect based in Kamloops designed the new building. It is his admiration of the Art Moderne and Modern Contemporary style that is evident in the 1940 home that inspired the new building aptly named 'Box Camera'. Stuart and Del are pleased to offer this lovely private suite which was the former photography office to those who want to enjoy the many holiday recreations that Penticton and area have to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Penticton:
                      This home was chosen for its character and central location. It is a 1940 heritage home from the Art Moderne movement which was designed by architect Robert Lyon. He later became Reeve of the town of Penticton and presided over the growing community's change from town to city. This home and a 'sister' home of similar style in Kelowna designed by Mr. Lyon were featured in a chapter of a book entitled 'Building the West - The Early Architects of British Columbia' by Donald Luxton.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      We love the extra large size of the property which gives breathing room and of course the 'Art Deco - Modernity' of the architecture. Be sure to ask us about those defining features, which when understood, helps to appreciate the wide influence this design movement has in the evolution of design, art and architecture.
