2019.034 Barrie Pianos

Thomson Architecture, Inc. was asked by the City of Barrie’s Poet Laureate (Victoria Butler) to provide services and/or materials to create a small roof/structure to protect the public piano to be placed at Meridian Place downtown. We were happy to support any public project of this kind and so provided both design, materials and installation of a small roof designed to deflect rain from the piano. While we initially had provided 6 designs all of which features a base structure and a roof, the project proponent preferred a bolt-on roof structure as was featured at a similar project in Kelowna.

The intent was to limit costs and keep the structure simple, while not obscuring the paint-work added by the project’s proponent.
