Tapestry Hall

Cambridge, Ontario

Heritage Factory Transformed into Event Space

What was once a foundry and manufacturing facilty now functions as a high-class event space. This century-and-a-half old building was upgraded and carefully preserved during the process. Outside, the masonry was restored while a new roof and windows were installed. Inside, existing elements such as interior limestone walls, concrete floors, overhead crane rails, vintage beams and wood ceilings were renewed. A new Mezzanine overlooks the expansive Main Hall, which can accommodate over 650 guests for a seated dinner or 1,000 for a cocktail style event.

Tapestry Hall’s Foyer ceiling is one of its most notable features with its mixed media, living art installation known as Meander, created by renowned artist Philip Beesely.

Across the foyer is the Tap Room, a more intimate space featuring more restored vintage beams and limestone and a view of Foundry Brewing’s brew-room.
