At a time in which religious heritage is a challenge all over the world, architecture practice Provencher Roy + Associés Architectes were involved in the conversion of a heritage church in Montreal, Canada. Holders of several awards, such as the 2011 Design Grand Prix and the 2011 Prix d’excellence, the architects have integrated the Canadian Museum into an urban space, the design of which brings the presence of the past and the modernity of the future. The old Erskine and American Church (built at the end of the 19th century, with Neo-Roman features) has been transformed into a concert hall with 444 seats. While 20 Tiffany stained glass panels decorate the side facades and inside the plaster ceiling and the mouldings have been restored, the glass openings of the new Claire and Marc Bourgie Pavilion of Quebec and Canadian Art, covering 5,483 sqm, offer, through their views, a natural dialogue with the city.
