Operated by the Jean Tweed Centre and located on the Humber College Etobicoke campus, the Cumberland House is an addiction treatment centre and halfway-house for women. The Victorian structure is a heritage building that is protected by the Ontario Heritage Trust. It is part of the original Mimico Asylum. The scope of work on the 3-storey plus basement house included interior upgrades to finishes, millwork, lighting, ventilation systems and a new kitchen. Recognizing the heritage value, ATA’s approach to the project, was to deliver a design that protects key features while maintaining the original character of the building. Due to the nature of the facility, a neutral palette was desired by the staff. Materials were selected to provide a high-quality aesthetic while being resilient to damage and vandalism. Construction was phased to accommodate the building remaining occupied during the entire construction process.
