MAP

One of the most important cultural and historic landmarks in Ottawa, the former Union train station has been transformed into the temporary home for the Senate of Canada.

The project presented a unique set of opportunities: to restore the historic Beaux Art train station, to upgrade the facilities to a modern, secure 21st century building: and to give voice to a narrative of Canadian culture and identity.

In realizing these opportunities the project embraces innovative approaches to craftsmanship and fabrication, invokes a contemporary approach to new interventions, and both complements and juxtaposes the character defining elements of the original building.
