Chinook Credit Union, Strathmore, AB.
I led the design for this building when I worked at Group 2 Architecture. The building fills a prominent site in the historic downtown. The architecture enhances the streetscape and creates a friendly and welcoming building. An internal concrete stair has a mid landing that cantilevers over the reception desk with a child’s play area in behind.
The building features several sustainable design elements such as an energy efficient envelope, an eco-roof and a landscape design which incorporated native and drought tolerant species. The Landscape Architect was Deron Miller of Scatliffe Miller Murray.
