Victoria Lofts, Toronto, ON

The Victoria Lofts created living space by converting the decommissioned 1892 Victoria-Royce Presbyterian Church into residential units. It retains the Romanesque Revival exterior form of the building with only minor alterations. Heather & Little were commissioned to fabricate custom decorative sheet copper cladding and install it to the exterior of the building to replace those elements that were beyond repair. 

The copper arches, collars and cornice appear deceptively simple. Each element was made from several separate pieces and then soldered and required complicated radius corners. Anytime you need to put a bend in the length of sheet metal and then curve it with a smooth radius, it’s a challenging procedure calling for the most experienced artisans.
