After a three-year pandemic hiatus, Heritage Toronto was able to host an in-person awards ceremony, celebrating excellence in the heritage sector.
Six winners were named from 44 nominees, with Massey Hall winning in the Built Heritage category. The jury called the project a skillful revitalization of a Toronto landmark, being impressed with the craftsmanship applied to the building’s original masonry, stained glass, and decorative plaster ceilings, as well as the terrazzo and marble elements of the 1930s Art Deco-style foyer. The committee also praised the spatial inventiveness; the addition bringing performance space, new bars and new circulation onto a tight and complex site.
