In December 2012, a team of builders led by DTAH and E.R.A. architects shored up the crumbling brick facade and demolished everything behind, including the old foundations. From a hole in the ground rose an entirely new structure, cleverly disguised as the very thing it replaced, plus a little extra at the rear.
The restoration of Little Trinity Church Workman's Cottage at 399 King Street East goes beyond mere façadism. Behind a fully restored northern façade, DTAH has designed a modern yet contextually sensitive building that will bring new life and much needed additional space to the previously abandoned and badly dilapidated heritage site.

In finding a permanent home away from Toronto's established theatre district, and choosing to nest in Leslieville, Crow's Theatre seeks to redefine the relationship between artistic direction and spectator by getting to know its audience - and its neighbours. “This isn’t,” says Lobko, partner at DTAH, himself an east end resident, “just about building a theatre; it’s about sharing it with an area that needs it. For one third of the year, that will be theatre; for the other two-thirds, it will be available for community activities”
