What are you working on? The King George Public School redevelopment in Newmarket will revitalize a neglected historical property and establish its iconic place in the community. The property is transforming into 11 condominium lofts within the school building, with 14 two-storey freehold townhomes in the surrounding playground. The townhome design is based on a hybrid of the neighbourhood’s Victorian and Edwardian architecture with a contemporary twist. Under the design leadership of Gianpiero Pugliese, the architects at Audax have applied a design approach they call Human Architecture, which combines the best elements of traditional architecture with a modern aesthetic. Residents will be able to walk to Main Street and live steps away from shops and boutiques, cafés, restaurants and parks.
