Hamilton City Hall Restoration by +VG Architects

+VG Architects has restored and recycled one of the best remaining International Style civic complexes in Canada, Hamilton City Hall.

+VG Architects were appointed as heritage architecture conservation specialists for all the interior and exterior work (excluding landscaping and replacement of the cladding of the original marble exterior). Paul Sapounzi was partner-in-charge.

Hamilton City Hall, designed by architect Stanley Roscoe, is an eight-storey building that officially opened in 1960. The primary materials of the exterior facade include white precast concrete over upgraded insulation and air/vapour barrier; curtain wall with high-performance glazing and integral sunshades; restored mosaic tile curtain-wall spandrel panels, soffits and fascia with aluminum soffit panels, and restored black marble wall panels.

Materials used on the interior include new marble service counters using new and salvaged marble, wood-slat ceilings, restored terrazzo floors throughout, and restored wood wall panels on the second floor for the mayor’s and councilors’ offices.
