The Church of the Holy Trinity is an Anglican church in downtown Toronto, Canada at Trinity Square. The modest Gothic Revival structure was built in 1847 by architect Henry Bowyer Lane. It is approximately five stories tall. Though the scale of the church is modest, its height is emphasized through details which point upward. The church’s Gothic Revival design is evident in the materials and elements of the building.
Like many Gothic churches, the Church of the Holy Trinity has used limestone for its foundation and window tracery, as well as sandstone, brick, and wood. A unique element on the exterior of the church is the line of colorful arches under the eaves.
The building was renovated by removing the existing mortar from the stones replacing it with a new, more reinforced one, in accordance with the new specifications requested.
All wood paneling and wooden sculptures have been repaired since they had been largely damaged by vermin. All the building’s stones have been purified from the smog and carbon dioxide which were destroying them, turning them into powder. Any repainting and old dirt from the facades have been removed using water jetting. Finally under floor heating was placed in order to relieve the building from uprising moisture.
