the new, the old, and the new again
The Ottawa Chinese Bible Church (OCBC) purchased a stately 1950s A-framed church building, ideally located in downtown Ottawa, with the intention of building an addition to satisfy the needs for classrooms and offices. The design proposes an optimized circulation between old and new, an elevator, and a new welcome/fellowship lounge to anchor the corner. The new facade is takes its cue from the original rhythm of glass and columns, which remain exposed in the new fellowship lounge area. [seeking site plan control approval ]
the interior of this restaurant was designed to have an elegant counter that curls from the entrance to the back of the restaurant, finished with vertical manila rope along the counter. full image mural wallpaper and various Japanese inspired finishes and decor complete the concept.
