Not much chance of this gay man joining the Sisters of St. Joseph Convent in Peterborough, Ontario, but if there was ever a convent to attend based on its beauty and charms, it would be this one!
Designed by Teeple Architects, Inc. (teeplearch.com), this modern gem is also green. The convent will have a LEED Gold standing for sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality.
There's an in-depth article and photo tour over at Greensource.Construction.com.
Thanks to Dwell Magazine for the head's up!
