7 Clarence Street

In 2017, this building was part of the NCC’s Confederation Pavilions in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary as the International Pavilion.

This site became the 2017 International Pavilion where each diplomatic mission exhibited and promoted its country’s relationship with Canada.

About 7 Clarence Street

The NCC has introduced this contemporary building as part of a much larger project to restore five heritage buildings in and around the Tin House Court. This restoration project includes universal accessibility upgrades to the Victorian structures. The new building at 7 Clarence, designed in close collaboration with the local community, also features universal accessibility, as well as sustainable design (in compliance with LEED® standards).

The building at 7 Clarence has been designed for flexibility of use—to house exhibits, offices or boutiques—but, even more importantly, to form a fitting gateway to the Tin House Court, a gateway that is in keeping with the historic character of the other buildings in this important heritage neighbourhood.
