Originally built in 1927, the Wellington is a distinctive Beaux Arts building in Canada’s capital city. NORR was chosen to transform it from insurance office building to dignified facilities for the House of Commons. Our design team made sure the remaining character-defining heritage rooms on the ground floor were preserved and restored.
