Project Description

‘Eyes Which See’ is an intervention of Ottawa’s Southminster United Church purposefully re-
designed with the reveal to conserve the church’s built heritage. The project establishes urban, architectural and human connections, using a combination of maintenance, rehabilitation, adaptive reuse and preservation techniques to achieve successful interventions.
The church’s adaptive reuse divides it into half thinker’s space and half worship space-relating thinking to higher truths.
