FARQUHAR ROBERTSON RESIDENCE
The Farquhar Robertson House, built in 1899 by famed architect Robert Findlay, belonged to Mr. Robertson, who amassed his considerable fortune in the coal and wood industry. The building is a perfect example of Neo-Roman revival, inspired by American architect Henry Richardson. In its reimagined version, ACDF has chosen to accentuate its significant timeless details, playing on the rounded arches, the red brick and ochre sandstone, the insertion of carved stone, the sloped roof and the upper-story loggia and its Corinthian arcade. The decidedly contemporary interiors of the four newly designed units are a tribute to the distinctive and inspiring original décor and are perfectly blended within.
