Inspiration realized

619 Queen Street West

Location: Toronto, Canada
Client: 
Hullmark Developments
Completion:
2015

Replacing a historic building destroyed by fire, this new two storey retail building evokes the memory of its predecessor using a perforated stainless steel screen. With apertures cut to create the illusion of the former façade, this unique design evokes a vision of the past while granting tenants additional natural light.
