Built in 1867, Brockville’s second Fire Hall was then known as the Hook and Ladder.

After purchasing the building that previously housed a photo studio, Steve Kruize set upon the task of restoring 44 King Street East.

Drawing inspiration from his love of design and spending over a decade in Europe appreciating the charm and beauty of European architecture, Steve’s vision started to take shape for the Hook and Ladder. After gutting the building from top to bottom, the historic building’s true beauty was revealed.

Now with re-pointed stone walls, exposed wood beams, eco-friendly cork flooring, unique rice paper sliding walls and beautiful finishings, 44 King Street East has been transformed into a warm and relaxing place to practice yoga and meditation.
