Welcome to the first Canadian Architecture blog brought to you by the Malcolmites! We hope this blog will encourage those interested in Canadian architecture to talk (or more specifically, type) about architecture in Canada.
The Malcolmites are a group of current and former students that received their Canadian architectural history education(s) from Dr. Malcolm Thurlby. The core members are Peter, Barry, Candace, and Jess.

Today, I was fortunate enough to have been given a tour of a recent restoration project on a fully-detached nineteenth-century house near Harbord and Spadina in Toronto. This house, which blends elements from the Richardsonian Romanesque and Queen Anne styles of the late nineteenth century, retains much of its original interior woodwork and its original mixture of stylistic features that compose its characteristically Torontonian facade. We will be keeping an eye on this project, not least because my father's company is handling the restoration as well as the large addition on the rear. Way to go, Dad! It's looking great!
