Gurdwara, the Sikh Temple
Project: Gurdwara, The Sikh Temple, Ottawa ON
Design + Support: Mustafa Master
Budget: 1.5M
Completion: N/A



The clients desired a modern exterior with a traditional interior in a rural setting for this temple. The building design uses bold modular geometric forms to represent traditional massing and proportions. The interior is designed as a more traditional space delicately decorated with various cultural motifs and lit with carefully controlled openings to highlight specific elements of value and interest. The site plan leads the arriving congregation through a sequence of carefully landscaped forecourts, gardens and semi private courtyards onto a bridge over a traditional moat before entering into the controlled interior spaces.
