Sustainable Design: Adaptive Reuse
gottSChalk+aSh (St. JoSeph Content) tranSformS

located in Toronto’s St. Clair and Christie
neighbourhood, what were originally streetcar
repair barns now form a 60,000-square-foot
multifaceted community centre where arts and
culture, environmental leadership, heritage
preservation, urban agriculture and affordable
housing are brought together to foster a strong
sense of community.
    Gottschalk+Ash (G+A) helped Artscape
Wychwood Barns come to life by applying
its expertise in environmental graphic
design to create a wayfinding system and
integrative signs.
    “Our job as environmental designers was
not so much to provide orientation to get
                                                                       ARTSCAPE WYCHWOOD BARNS: Adaptive reuse is a key factor
from A to B, but to emphasize the transforma-
                                                                       in reducing urban sprawl by adapting old structures for purposes
tion that took place and to remind people
                                                                       other than those initially intended
about the history of the barns,” says G+A
Design Director Udo Schliemann.
    Signage for the project was inspired by
images of the 1920s and 1930s streetcar barn.
Bringing in the colours and typographic style of
the TTC signage at that time, G+A tied in
the old with the new. Specific features include
coloured rings around the smokestack
representing the colours of the five barns,
large numbers for each barn with “rails” criss-
crossing the surface, iconic directories and
innovative donor recognition.
    The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU)
recently recognized Artscape Wychwood
Barns with the Charter Award, recognizing
excellence in urbanism and sustainability.
