Windsor Public Library, John Muir Branch

This building was constructed as a firehall in Sandwich in 1921. After a 2019 renovation, which transformed it from derelict to multi-award winning, it is now described as "the community's living room." A suspended walkway joins the main library to a reused and rare surviving 19th-century firehall stable. It’s a spectacular and innovative example of adaptive reuse and heritage restoration.
