THA returns to Doors Open Toronto

THA returns to Doors Open Toronto

Taylor Hazell Architects will open their doors to the public as part of Doors Open Toronto 2019. As one of 20 architecture firms participating in the Architects’ Studio Tours, THA has prepared a special program facilitated by the Toronto Society of Architects.

Our interdisciplinary team of architects, heritage conservation specialists, facility planners and project managers specialize in architecture, conservation, adaptive reuse, and strategic planning. Come and share in our three decades of experience helping conserve and reinvigorate some of Canada’s most important buildings, such as the R.C. Harris Water Treatment Plant, Osgoode Hall, and Casa Loma. Visitors can learn about these memorable projects and get a glimpse into our ongoing work, which includes a number of renovations and additions to cultural institutions and restorations and retrofits of government buildings. Staff will be on hand to answer your questions and share insights into our current projects. We are happy to be joined by the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario who will give a talk & demonstration of the TOBuilt crowd-sourced database of Toronto’s built environment.
