Join us at The Loft in the Distillery for the following!
David and Michael have been working with the owners of the Distillery District since 2003 helping to create a four-season public realm that seamlessly integrates the new development projects with the existing heritage fabric. This tour will be jointly given by the landscape architects, and joined by Jamie Goad, an owner, architect, city-builder and visionary. It will be a balanced and exciting showcasing of work, including the design of the District's laneways, courtyards, streets and servicing areas, while embracing and repurposing elements of the industrial heritage as contemporary expressions. Working in the former industrial site presented both design and technical challenges that informed the creation of these opportunistic, episodic series of public spaces that are seasonally programmed; always changing and fun to explore.
