DTAH has been engaged by New Dawn Enterprises to lead the architecture and landscape architecture design of the new Cape Breton Centre for Arts, Culture and Innovation. New Dawn Enterprises purchased the historic Holy Angels Convent in Sydney, Nova Scotia, with the desire to preserve the 133 year-old building and revitalize it into a centre that could host the Island’s growing innovation community and deep-rooted tradition of arts and culture. Construction is currently underway, and once completed the former Holy Angels Convent will be transformed into a vibrant new home for a number of local organizations, including Celtic Colours, Nova Stream, The Coast, and New Dawn, as well as a new program for the Nova Scotia Community College and many individual artists.
As part of Doors Open Toronto 2018, DTAH's studio at 50 Park Road will be open to the public and Partner Joe Lobko will be giving a presentation on the adaptive re-use of Holy Angels Convent. Please join us on Sunday, May 27 at 1PM to learn more about this exciting project!
