NEO Architecture Inc.

This petite building began as a produce store with a residence above. Later, it was a clothing shop for almost 50 years. In 2014, architect Laird Robertson bought it and renovated it while maintaining the original façade. NEO is Robertson’s practice with Doug McIntosh. They will host a Doors Open exhibition opening – works by five visual artists, inspired by architecture.
