Location: Gjoa Haven, NU

Date Completed: 2017

 

The Gjoa Haven Hamlet Office is a renovation to an existing office building that at one time housed the community hall. Because of the high, expansive ceiling, close attention was paid to the ceiling layout by incorporating skylights and a rhythm of lighting to create the feeling of bringing the outside in. The skylights allow natural light and views to the sky from all offices, even those located in the internal core of the building. The lobby space incorporats flexible furniture, with large sliding glass doors to allow it to open up to the council chamber and act as a larger community gathering space when required.
