The Wellesley Institute is a non-profit charity whose mission is to address health inequity in the Greater Toronto Area. The Institute’s new home is in a 19th century semi-detached brick house that has been converted into one larger functional space, which completed construction in 2022. During construction, the project was featured in The Globe and Mail to highlight the renovation including accessibility, improving circulation, and addressing structural issues of a century-old residence.
In The Globe and Mail article, Agathom architect Adam Thom is quoted as follows:
“… [I]t’s interesting to view it at the stage before all of the niceties go in, and all the hard work of jacking up sagging floors and the reinforcement of the single wythe party wall (which no one had seen before) is still in evidence.”
