Doors Open 2008 – JPTA Office and Studio

In September 2008, JPTA participated in Doors Open Windsor; celebrating the unique and historically significant buildings in the Windsor area.

The South End Mission of All Saints’ Anglican Church started with Anglicans meeting at the Church of the Nazarene and then in Victoria School. The Mission opened on October 8, 1922. In 1942, a committee was appointed to negotiate with the City of Windsor for a site to build a new Church. On this site, a sod-turning ceremony took place on July 19th, 1948 for a new building and the cornerstone was laid on November 14, 1948. On October 16, 1949 the new Parish Hall for the Anglican Church was finally completed and officially opened.

The building was originally designed as the Parish Hall with the intention to build the actual church on the east lawn. Eventually, a lack of funds required the Hall to become both Church and Hall.

While in excellent structural condition, JPTA completely gutted and re-built the interior and made significant exterior upgrades.  In 2004, the firm won a Built Heritage Award through the Windsor Heritage Committee for recognition of the effort to maintain/restore the original architectural integrity of the property. The resulting renovation has created an enlivened space that reflects the dynamic work environment of the office.
