Soul Sanctuary Church
Location: Winnipeg, MB, Canada
Status: Completed 2014
This 34,000 square foot complex features a new gathering space for worship which doubles as a community gymnasium,
as well as three oversized classrooms and an open gathering space which flows out of the building's double-height,
light-filled central atrium.
The church's downplayed and simplified utilitarian aesthetic architecturally embodies Soul Sanctuary's mission of maintaining certain “core” spiritual beliefs while liberating itself to embrace diversity in “non-core” doctrines among its membership. The building's language reflects this approach by embracing a non-defined form, deliberately eliminating architectural embellishment and reducing itself to its most essential parts.
