The Daniels Faculty's new home at One Spadina Crescent has just added yet another trophy to its growing collection. At last night's Heritage Toronto Awards, the Daniels Building won this year's prize for Built Heritage.
The Heritage Toronto Awards honour organizations and individuals that support the preservation of the city's history. One Spadina caught the jury's attention for its reuse of the renovated 19th-century Knox College building, which now forms the southern portion of the Daniels Building. The jury was particularly impressed by the way the older structure exists "in dialogue, but not in competition" with the newly built northern portion.
The Daniels Building — designed by principal architects Nader Tehrani and Katherine Faulkner of NADAAA, with heritage architects ERA — has recently also been recognized with awards from Architectural Conservancy Ontario and the city of Toronto.
