This facility provides BFN with a flexible space that can be used for many different community needs

Project Description

This new Bingo and Gaming Facility closely follows Batchewana First Nation’s building tradition. The building’s exterior emphasizes natural materials such as timber and stone which dominate the main entrance. A clear-span structure was employed so as to create as flexible a space possible to serve multiple community needs. The interior space is divided into two large separately vented, but visually connected, assembly spaces. The main challenge for the project was to carefully balance grand aspirations with practical needs such as function and capital costs.
