2013 Heritage Toronto Awards Nominee

This project involved the restoration of a rare pressed metal commercial façade and the interior renovation of a three-storey, 1889 building in the Junction. Work included the reconstruction in steel of the structure of the oriel window to its original dimensions, the replication of deteriorated metal components and the reconstruction of the façade, including all decorative details, according to the original design. Interior renovations resulted in a new ground floor retail space, and the renovation of second and third floor rental units into a single family home.
Mjölk House, 2959 Dundas Street West is nominated for a 2013 Heritage Toronto Award in the William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship category. This category honours owners who have undertaken projects to restore or adapt buildings or structures that have been in existence for forty years or more or are included on the City of Toronto’s Inventory of Heritage Properties. In addition to the quality of craftsmanship, appropriateness of materials, and the use of sound conservation principles, the jury considers how well the project meets current needs while maintaining the integrity of the original design vision.
