The Ridout Row project by Shoalts and Zaback Architects Ltd consists of the adaptive re-use and addition to two historic row house buildings at the Royal Military College of Canada. The Administration Center design incorporates the courtyard between the housing rows by programming it with open and private spaces as well as meeting rooms. The design is compatible in scale with the original buildings while at the same time clearly contrasting with the historic architecture. The project, which was completed in September 2005 was a Nominee for the 2008 Livable City Design Award. Photos by David Bell.
