Level of archival description:
Extent and medium:
  • 1,451 drawings (including 21 reprographic copies)
Scope and content:
This project series documents the Pavilions Condominiums, later referred to as the H2O Condominiums, in Toronto from 1995-1999. The office identified the project number as 9505.

This project consisted of the design of four large condo buildings located on the shoreline of Lake Ontario at 500 Queens Quay West. The first two buildings, with an exterior of concrete, red brick and glass, were completed and occupied in the spring of 1999. The two eleven-storey towers were connected in a U-shape by a smaller building, creating a courtyard at their centre. Two more towers were scheduled for completion in 2001, but they were never built.

The project is recorded through drawings dating from 1995-1997. The drawings are mostly originals and include sketches, presentation drawings, plans, elevations, sections, perspectives and details. There are also some reprographic copies of watercolour paintings in the materials.

Materials in this project series were compiled from multiple accessions and some have been arranged by material type.
