GBSA wins Award of Excellence at TUDA 2013

G. Bruce Stratton Architects wins Award of Excellence in 'Public Buildings in Context' category for Mount Dennis Library Renovation (TPL) at the 2013 Toronto Urban Design Awards.

September 11, 2013
Palais Royale - Toronto

Of the 125 submissions made by firms throughout the City of Toronto across all categories, Mount Dennis Library becomes only 1 of 11 submissions to win an Award of Excellence and was the only library to do so this year. This year's pool was truly a competitive batch of outstanding projects and Mount Dennis Library was one of the few to stand out from the rest of the competition.

Award Acceptance by Bruce Stratton (GBSA) and Anne Bailey (TPL)

Jury Comment
"The Mount Dennis Library is a very thoughtful renovation of a modest yet important neighbourhood library. It represents a remarkable example of a project displaying a "complete" civic response by contributing creatively to the streetscape, providing a highly transparent faรงade, and paying attention to details. The building contributes and responds elegantly to the
main street condition. It is a simple yet elegant transformation of a much-needed public building
in this area, and helps set the stage for change in the future. The library's renewed image redefines
its place as an important community landmark for the area."
