    Jury's Decision


    The jury felt this project is a skillful revitalization of a Toronto landmark. The committee was impressed with the craftsmanship applied to the building’s original masonry, stained glass, and decorative plaster ceilings, as well as the terrazzo and marble elements of the 1930s Art Deco-style foyer. The spatial inventiveness also warrants praise; the addition brings performance space, new bars and new circulation onto a tight and complex site.
