‘It’s a very small building, but it’s very rich,’ new Hill space opens with Sir John A. Macdonald Building addition

There's now an extra 33,400 square-feet of space for Parliamentarians. Before construction, it was simply an empty courtyard with some parking space beside the Old Bank of Montreal building. Now it's so much more.

The new addition to the John A. Macdonald Building at 144 Wellington St. has been lauded by Canada’s architectural community with four awards, including the National Trust for Canada 2015 Cornerstone Award for Heritage Rehabilitation/Adaptive Use and the City of Ottawa 2015 Urban Design Award for Excellence of Urban Infill—Low Rise.Photograph courtesy of Double Space Photography
