As the second oldest Anglican Church building holding services in Alberta, Christ Church Anglican Church has a fascinating history. Originally built in 1887, it has had many additions including a fellowship hall, an apse, and kitchen built in 1911, 1967 and 1979 respectively. The building is in desperate need of functional, accessible space including bringing the priest's office to grade level in order to be more available to congregants. Designed to be a quiet addition, the new structure honours the original church by stepping back from it. The additional space downplays its position while simultaneously presenting a more prominant approach and entry. All of this has to be achieved while isolating the structure from the 1897 and 1911 construction.
