Adamson Associates Architects and Rogers Stirk Harbour+Partners have unveiled designs for the replacement scheme for the St Lawrence market building in Ontario, Canada.
The building will be replaced by an airy four-storey structure at a cost of $58m.
The design will feature a five-storey high atrium and underground parking, and the top three glassed-in levels will house Toronto’s courtrooms and its administrative offices.
The design connects the building to St Lawrence Market to the south and St Lawrence Hall to the north, and meets the latest green building standards.
Scheduled to open in 2014, the building has also employed many sustainable features including a green roof, and a geothermal heating and cooling system.
