About This Project

Set within a 40 hectare park-like setting, this project combined landscaped and built form to create exterior religious spaces for the Sisters of Saint Joseph. Stations of the Cross, a meditative chapel and a covered area for the celebration of Mass were located in the comfortable micro-climates and areas of the site that were best suited for contemplation and meditation. Simple forms, made of natural materials were used to create spiritual atmospheres, deferring to nature for colour and texture. The program included exterior religious spaces including the Stations of the Cross, a meditative chapel and a covered area for saying Mass within the existing park-like grounds of the convent.
