Bank Street Building , 2003
Architectural Competition, finalist
Ottawa, Ontario
The Parliamentary Precinct site, located between the city and the Ottawa River, enjoys strong relationships between public space and a unified architectural form juxtaposed with the picturesque composition of the Gothic Revival buildings and its family of towers. The building - the first to be constructed on Parliamentary Hill in more than 80 years - includes twelve high-tech committee rooms grouped around an exterior courtyard, a café, exhibition space, an underground distribution centre and an automated parking garage.

The project features a ten-storey Tower, which houses the Senators’ offices and reinterprets the historical image of the existing towers on the site in a contemporary manner. Its verticality creates a dialogue with the neighbouring towers and is a monumental form, signaling the new addition to the Parliament complex.
