RJW Stonemasons Shop – Ottawa, Ontario

Located just east of downtown Ottawa, this monumental stone shop combines the tall vertical lines of the Jacobean style along with Scotch bond rubble work so commonly found in local heritage buildings.

The imposing façade is adorned with intricate carvings including three greenmen flanking the main entrance. Each face is enveloped in a mixture of carved thistles and maple leaves representing Scotland and Canada.
