2015 Award of Merit – Conservation – Small and Lovely

123/125 Brant Avenue

The conservation of this 1860’s, early Victorian cottage that is part of the larger Brant Avenue Conservation District consisted of both rehabilitation and restoration. The rehabilitation approach was based on the adaptation of the historic property for a continuing contemporary residential use while protecting its heritage value. And the restoration approach included the repair and replacement of the historic features as necessary.

Non- character defining additions from 1987 to 2012 were removed and missing exterior features from the restoration period were replaced based on clear physical evidence discovered during the removals stage.
