A Memory Trace

King Edward Elementary School // Windsor, Ontario // Completed

King Edward was built to replace the original school, completed in 1905 and designed by renowned architect Albert Kahn (1869-1942), in the quaint historical residential neighborhood of old Walkerville.

Heritage concerns resulted in JPT going through great lengths to preserve the original entrance façade, which was disassembled stone by stone, stored offsite, then reassembled in its current location. The final design incorporated this finely crafted 90 year old stone front entrance of the original building into the new school.
