Premier's Awards of Excellence in Design - Design Council of Saskatchewan
Our Team at Kreate Architecture and Design Ltd. is honoured to have been awarded the Premier's Award of Excellence in Design 2017 for the Piapot First Nation Arbour enclosure.
The arbour hosts events throughout the summer months, culminating in a Powwow gathering on the third weekend in August of each year. This gathering provides a celebration of First Nation’s culture, heritage and activities; all centrally located within the arbour / powwow grounds. The design process engaged the client team in an interactive fashion including site reviews, opportunities for cultural growth, functional attributes, powwow sequencing and activities as well as potential materials, site access and orientation. This process included sketching, site demonstrations and model making to successfully illustrate proposed concepts for confirmation and approval by the client committee.
