Downtown in Victoria in Capital, British Columbia — Canada’s West Coast (North America)
The Church of Our Lord
Cette église pittoresque est l'un des plus beaux exemples en bois du style néo-gothique au Canada. Érigée en 1875, elle abrita l'Église épiscopale réformée qui a été établie à Victoria par le pasteur Edward Cridge. L'architecte John Teague a mis en valeur son caractère gothique en utilisant un lambris vertical à couvre-joints qui accentue la verticalité du toit à pignon, des pinacles et de la flèche. A l'intérieur, le plafond à blochets coiffe une grande surface ouverte, qui permet une vue bien dégagée de l'abside et de la chaire.
