The Adelaide Project by TPL Lighting is a one-of-a-kind boutique studio that recently underwent extensive renovations and restorations. The studio offers an innovative and experiential way to specify and source luminaires all within the context of furnishings, art, and decor.

Prior to becoming The Adelaide Project, the building where the studio now stands was deemed a heritage home by the Ontario Heritage Trust and is a part of a set of homes coined “The William Clarke Houses”, after the local builder responsible for the homes. These William Clarke Houses, including The Adelaide Project, have significant cultural heritage value as a pair of surviving semi-detached houses, displaying features of the Gothic Revival style popular for residential buildings in the late l9th century.

Designed as mirror images, The Adelaide Project building and its neighbor are distinguished in particular by the brick and elaborate wood detailing in the gables and porches. The value of the William Clarke Houses is also associated with their role in providing information about the historical evolution of the local community, which began as a residential neighborhood on land formerly allocated for a military reserve. Clarke resided for a time in the building where The Adelaide Project is now.

With lighting design in mind, The team behind The Adelaide Project lovingly renovated the building and included adjustments to the electrical plan, lighting controls, and ceiling heights to maximize the impact of product displays. The space was constructed with flexibility in mind, so that lighting pieces can be added and removed with ease. This capability allows for installations to be rotated quarterly within The Adelaide Project so that the latest innovative, design-inspired luminaires and lighting control solutions are consistently on display. Additional renovations included the replacement of floors, stairs, railings, windows, and hardware. The ceiling rosettes, crown molding, coiffed details, front door, and interior hardware were restored.
