This housing development was designed to reinvigorate the space behind the Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa that is currently a parking lot. An emphasis was put on one’s journey through the site, concealing and revealing the church along the path and providing spaces of pause in the form of gardens and seating. The idea of solid and void within the site was also brought down to the micro scale in the construction detail by incorporating voids to bring in natural light and hanging the cladding apart from the structure.
