  • Imperial Oil Building

    111 St. Clair Avenue West

    The principal challenge of the renovations undertaken on the mid-century tower was creating attractive residential units within the existing steel-framed structure, while ensuring that the layouts did not interfere with the steel columns and beams.

    The two-storey entrance lobby, including marble flooring, the York Wilson murals, and three original clocks, was rehabilitated in full. The exterior alterations, including window replacement and the careful insertion of terraces, were designed to have a minimal impact on the robust and clean lines of the original stone exterior.

    The project won a Heritage Toronto Built Heritage Award of Merit in 2016.
