19 Regina

Uptown Waterloo has an exciting mix of old and new. A prime example of this contrast is found at 19 Regina Street in Uptown Waterloo. Once a glove factory in a modest red brick three-storey building, 19 Regina is now a contemporary tenanted office boasting an attractive extension and fourth floor boardroom and enviable terrace.

The red brick façade and detailing was restored, windows previously bricked in were re-opened, and additional windows were added in a harmonious, seamless fashion. An incongruous 1950s addition was demolished and a new addition was added - an impressive, four-storey black structure with supersized windows. The most impressive new space is found on the top floor. The elevator opens to reveal a dramatic granite accent wall and three walls comprising floor-to-ceiling glazing. Very few boardrooms in the region boast such a special urban view - sure to inspire potential and current clients. The boardroom opens onto an equally inspiring outdoor terrace. Complete with plantings, BBQ, wet bar, seating, shading canopy, and wood privacy screens this is the perfect spot to enjoy a break during the work day.

This project was started under Certificate of Practice issued to Robertson Simmons architects inc. prior to firm name change to Martin Simmons Sweers Architects Inc.

“We took the original manufacturing building and restored it to its original glory, but improved it with the knowledge, technology, and expectations we have now. Anything we added to the building through the extension is very contemporary and of our time, but understated so the new and old aren’t competing. The result is a really cool office space in one of the best locations in the city.”

“MartinSimmons and Lexington Park share a philosophy of wanting to preserve the history of a particular site while at the same time demonstrating new possibilities for the future. I believe that when people see the thoughtful design and care that went into the build, they will appreciate the common vision Lexington Park and MartinSimmons have for UptownWaterloo.”
