The Saint Athanasius Community Centre is a proposed 9,800sm (105,000sf) addition to the pre-existing Coptic Christian Orthodox centre in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The Saint Athanasius Community Centre is currently in the schematic design phase. The driving force behind the design has been to compliment the existing architecture of the two churches. The strong verticality of the existing structures is juxtaposed by the subtle horizontality of the new development. There will be a strong connection between street and building as the community centre creates a unique backdrop to the original church with views opening into the two-storey glazed performance space.
