Inspiration realized

60 Atlantic Avenue


Location: Toronto, Canada
Client: 
Hullmark Developments Ltd.
Completion: 2014

Originally built in 1898 as a wine warehouse, 60 Atlantic has been repurposed as a three-storey commercial building and urban catalyst for area growth, with a new corten steel and glass addition that makes the building both accessible and aesthetically striking. The focus of the building is on establishing urban connectivity - its restoration and establishment of value through creative and contemporary intervention support the idea that the value of heritage is not only in preservation but in reasserting relevance.
