Metropolitan Bible Church, Ottawa on
Project Details: 69,000 sq. ft.,1,200 seats (expandable to 2,100)
Completed: Fall, 2008
Features: A new facility for The MET allowing them to combine their two venues into one. The auditorium is designed so that it can expand from the initial 1200 seats to 2100 seats in total. The two story central lobby divides the building in two with the auditorium on one side and the double gymnasium on the other. The glass tower is a symbol of the church and houses a coffee bar opening off of the second floor lobby (lower left image) and adjacent to the 150 seat Lecture Theatre. The Youth Lounge connects directly to the Lecture Theatre. The project was a joint venture between Parker Architects (conceptual design & interiors) and Ralph Vandenburg Architects of Ottawa.
