The Daniels Faculty's new home at One Spadina Crescent has once again been recognized for its outstanding design. At Thursday's Architectural Conservancy Ontario Heritage Awards, the Daniels Building was named the winner of 2019's Paul Oberman Award for Adaptive Reuse.
The award—named for real estate developer and heritage preservationist Paul Oberman, who died in 2011—honours architectural projects that revive older buildings.
The Daniels Building—designed by principal architects Nader Tehrani and Katherine Faulkner of NADAAA, with heritage architects ERA—incorporates a neo-Gothic structure that was originally built in 1875. The melding of that 19th-century building with a three-storey, modern rear addition makes One Spadina a prime example of adaptive reuse in Toronto.
