ERA Architects

Celebrating the Upcoming Heritage Toronto Awards

HTBHeritage Toronto recently released the list of award nominees for the William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship category. ERA is proud to be part of six out of sixteen nominated teams.

These six projects are diverse in their time period, conservational approach, and cultural impact. They range from the rehabilitation of the Hermant Building’s bronze entranceway, originally built in 1935 and lost in a later refurbishment, to the various renovations of the 1889 Trinity-St. Paul’s United Church, which not only restore the building but reimagine the space to effectively support congregational and communal engagement.

The 41st Annual Heritage Toronto Awards mark a significant year in heritage conservation as the event boasts a groundbreaking sixteen nominees, the largest list of candidates ever released. The William Greer Architectural Conservation and Craftsmanship category considers such qualifications as the preservation of the original design vision and the cultural impact of the restoration.
