Restyling Mackenzie King Estate
bon eco's summer project of 2013 was located north of Ottawa in the Gatineau Hills, Quebec. (William Lyon) Mackenzie King was Canada's tenth Prime Minister and bon eco was hired by the National Capital commission in Ottawa to curate, coordinate, fabricate and display objects and furnishings for his early cottages and summer home. Visitors to the estate will now enjoy the experience of Gatineau Park life during the 1930s and 1940s.
