Strathcona on the Parc Receives Urban Infill (low-rise) Award - Ottawa

Sandy Hill Flood Control and Park Rehabilitation, 250 Somerset Street East

Strathcona on the Parc is a 10 unit residential restoration, renovation and infill project located in the Sandy Hill Heritage Conservation District. The development features the restoration of the two existing Queen Anne Revival heritage houses, and a new 17,000 square metre, four storey addition at the rear of the property to accommodate eight new residential condominium units.

Strathcona on the Parc is designed in a contemporary vernacular sympathetic to, but distinct from, the existing heritage residences. It demonstrates that residential intensification in one of the Ottawa’s Heritage Conservation Districts can be achieved with a strategy of careful restoration and sensitive infill.

Some of the jury comments: “A clean, clear and honest infill project with good scale and proportion. The project is a sympathetic juxtaposition without crowding the adjacent buildings. It uses high-quality materials, fits well among the established character and streetscape, and appropriately considers and treats all facades.”
