Found a rendering on &Co's website:
An imaginative solution that creates an entirely new entity by renovating two heritage buildings, building a roof terrace, and tying the whole thing together with an atrium. A little bit CCBR, a little bit Distillery, a little bit OCAD even ... and wholly &Co.
I still can't see, judging by the render, how the south side of that building is standing up. It appears that the entire load bearing wall over top of the existing building is glass, which can't be. Perhaps the columns towards the north support it all, but that doesn't seem possible either.
It boggles the mind.
Perhaps more so than neo-modernism, which is essentially the equivalent of 'Ye Olde-ism" anyway, this blending of modern glass with heritage brick, the contrasting parts combining for a new whole, is fitting for the title 'Toronto Style'. And so many more examples to cite; Conservatory of Music and National Ballet School, or even the ROM and AGO (from the Grange side at least). I'm not sure to what degree this is being done elsewhere but this is definitely one of the predominant vernacular styles to have emerged in Toronto over the past 5 to 10 years, and it is so much more than facadism. Nice.
wow's thats really cool design ... as if floating on top of the existing building
and the glass structure works really well against the existing brick structure, an addition that is does not appear to be intrusive and over-powering ... well done &CO !
