Carmel New Church and School Doors Open Waterloo Region

Carmel New Church and School

This church and its original school wing are arguably the crowning achievement of John Lingwood, one of Ontario’s more imaginative mid-20th-century architects. Fieldstone, ribbons of windows and an abstract, wood-shingled roof create a one-of-a-kind, sculptural building. Inside, wood, stone, terrazzo and dramatic angles produce subtle effects of light, colour and sound. Check their schedule for musical performances during Doors Open.
