Hariri Pontarini Architects wins two Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence
for Outstanding Architectural Design

12 December 2013 – (TORONTO) December 11, 2013 – Hariri Pontarini Architects has won two prestigious Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence: one for the $36 million redevelopment and expansion of Casey House, a new type of health care facility devoted to those affected by HIV/AIDS; and another for the $37.5 million redevelopment and expansion of the Faculty of Law, University of Toronto (with B+H Architects). The awards were announced earlier today in the latest issue of Canadian Architect.

These awards are the highest recognition for excellence specifically in design in Canadian architecture. The program focuses on commissioned but not yet completed projects, recognizing design ambition and supporting a culture of design excellence. Of the 208 submissions received this year, the jury selected only six projects for Awards of Excellence.

Partner-in-Charge of both projects, Siamak Hariri, says: “It is a great honour to receive these awards. We are very fortunate to work with clients, like Casey House and the University of Toronto, that value high quality design and share an aspirational vision of their institutions. The Canadian Architect Awards are a positive reminder of the vitality of architecture and design.”

This year’s jury comprised Karen Marler, Partner at Hughes Condon Marler Architects (HCMA, Vancouver), Marianne McKenna, Founding Partner of KPMB Architects (Toronto), and Marc Simmons, Founding Partner of Front Inc. (New York City).

The jurors commented that Casey House is “a phenomenal project” that “responds to the heritage context with an addition that is decidedly modern.” They noted that “the imaginative way in which the architects have organized spaces facing into the interior courtyard is very contemplative, peaceful, and respectful of the residents.”

The Faculty of Law, University of Toronto was selected as “an incredibly resolved, well-executed design.” The jurors noted, “There is a rigor and finesse in its contextual fit that will serve to reinforce this as a landmark building on campus.”

The 59,000sqft redevelopment of Casey House is slated to go to tender in 2014, breaking ground later in the year and opening its doors in late 2016, while the 160,000sqft Faculty of Law at the University of Toronto is currently on site.

The award-winning projects have been published, complete with jury comments, in a special Awards issue of Canadian Architect this month. Accredited Canadian professionals may register for free access to the online version of the December 2013 issue at: www.canadianarchitect.com/issues/de.aspx.
