Governor-General’s Residence Stable

Governor-General’s Residence Stable, (1880) Ottawa –

Award of Excellence 2005 City of Ottawa Conservation Award
 

The program was to restore the exterior of this large timber frame stable to its original appearance but to convert the interior to modern office space housing staff support for the Governor General. As consultant to Katz Webster Clancey Associates Architects Inc. I was responsible for developing details for the restoration of exterior architectural features such as entrances, wrought iron hardware, windows, chimneys, siding and trim based on analysis of historic photographs and remaining original fabric.
