ERA Architects

Sultan Street

This collaboration with Hariri Pontarini Architects adds a mid-rise fritted-glass office building to a block of heritage buildings at Sultan and St. Thomas Streets, Toronto, where the commercial fabric surrounding Bloor St. transitions to the campus of St. Michael’s College. The existing three-storey red-brick houses on this block are excellent examples of the Romanesque Revival style popular during the late 19th-Century.

ERA was retained as heritage consultant for the project, providing condition assessments, Heritage Impact Assessment, Conservation Plan, oversight of all building repair and rehabilitation, including façade retention, consultation on interaction of new and heritage fabric, and design of signage and lighting appropriate to the heritage context.
