Architectural style

  • 1 Gothic Revival – High Victorian

    Influenced by the writings of John Ruskin (1819-1900) and the work of William Butterfield (1814-1900), this variant of Gothic Revival features playful colouring, incorporating polished granites, marbles, multi-coloured and pattered brickwork and tile work. The style is more eclectic than other Gothic Revival styles, free in expression and less archaeologically derivative. This style coincided with a major period of growth throughout Ontario, and is a very common type in the province. Leading practitioners of the style in Ontario were architects Henry Langley and Edmund Burke.
