GOVERNMENT HOUSE QEII ADDITION

Government House was originally constructed in 1891 to replace the prefabricated wood structure that had served as the residence of the Lieutenant Governors of the North West Territories. It is one of the pre-eminent heritage buildings in Saskatchewan. The addition, designed by our firm, was officially dedicated by the Queen in 2005 and has been named Queen Elizabeth II Wing.

The design of the addition is a blend of modern with a heritage theme that borrows from the original 1891 Government House. It primarily serves as a reception area and houses administration offices. The upper floor above the 1921 Ballroom was renovated to include an interactive interpretive display designed by Beauchesne & Co. The addition includes display space for the ceremonial Landau and Cutter. Service areas include a relocated commercial Kitchen, Workshop, and Storage areas, Mechanical and Electrical Service Rooms, as well as Servery areas for the Ballroom and new Multi-purpose space.

Accessibility is provided by two hydraulic elevators to access all levels, and through a new doorway opening that was created at one of the existing arched window openings into the Ballroom. That work was done in conjunction with the Addition designed by this firm, which was completed in 1999.

Rehabilitation of the Edwardian gardens started in 2009 and was completed in 2011.
