Operating as North America’s last “double-decker theatre”, the Winter Garden Theatre sits atop of the Elgin Theatre in downtown Toronto. Built in 1913, the theatre’s auditorium ceiling had an elaborate and very ornate real-leaf canopy that had come to the end of its natural lifespan and needed to be replaced.
After extended research, the decision was made to replace the historic leaves with artificial foliage. This new artificial canopy would not only ensure a much longer lifespan and lower maintenance but also conform to the latest fire safety regulations for public buildings in the process.
The inherently fire resistant foliage from plantART was selected as it most closely resembled the original foliage, which was pivotal for this heritage upgrade.
