Historic Convent Transformed Into Spectacular City Hall in Quebec, Canada

The redesign of this historic convent initially built in 1881 as the city hall and municipal offices re-establishes its presence at the center of community life. The project- repurposed by Affleck de la Riva Architects in Quebec, Canada- creates a dialogue between the restored heritage building and a contemporary addition housing a new entry lobby, an elevator and a generously glazed stair-tower. Creating a new entry on the lateral street is part of an overall site strategy that relocates parking to the back of the building and frees up the front of the site for a new formal garden.
