EVOQ was the Heritage Conservation Architect, responsible for all aspects of the historic elements in the complex, including the exterior envelope, ornamental entrance canopy and the interior heritage spaces.  The rehabilitation, restoration and preservation of these elements were designed and managed by Julia Gersovitz, Eric Stein and Neil McNulty. The prime consultant was NORR Limited

The Blinderman Residence received an Award of Excellence in the category of Conservation: Small & Lovely. The Committee and the Jury thought the submission was “excellent, and appreciated the sensitive minimal intervention.” The residence is the former home of renowned architect Percy Nobbs, located in Westmount, Quebec. The project was designed and managed by Julia Gersovitz, Rosanne Moss and Giovanni Diodati.

The awards were presented at the National Trust Conference in Hamilton, Ontario on October 21, 2016. “We are extremely honoured to be recognized with these awards. The two projects showcase the range of our expertise and talents, which we apply with equal passion to monumental institutional buildings and smaller, architectural gems” said Julia Gersovitz, EVOQ Director.
