Grace Toronto Church

The Grace Toronto Church community purchased this historic 1876 stone church at the northwest corner of Allen Gardens. Conceived to be completed in consecutive phases, the phase one scope of work provides underpinning of the foundations to accommodate an extensive Christian education facility, introduce air conditioning, complete renovations to the sanctuary, social spaces, ministry offices and support spaces and sensitively integrate an array of photovoltaics into the historic fabric of the building.

Phase two improved the transparency to the surrounding neighbourhood, extend the building beyond its exterior stone walls as an invitational gesture to the community they serve, and address conservation of windows, doors, and masonry.
