The office of THA is a 1919 building with an open storefront in the lively West Toronto Junction neighbourhood. Designed by Smith & Wright Architects, it was originally a well-known men’s clothing store with barber shop below and undertaker’s establishment next door. The proprietor and owner of both buildings lived upstairs in a stylish two-storey apartment during the 1920s. Designed in the Art Deco style, it has been renovated by THA, who purchased the building for their office and residential use in 2021. The ground and lower floor of the office will be open for lectures and demonstrations by senior staff over the course of the weekend.
