Nat'seki Ku Health Centre
Whitehorse, Yukon

In small First Nation communities, all public buildings serve as a meeting point. Here the village elders meet in a large entry open to the outside to drink coffee and exchange the latest gossip.

The building was completed 1998 as the second of a series of three public buildings that have created a visible civic centre in the sprawl of the reserve, and have given it its own architectural identity. Just like the Ashae Daycare (the first of the three) this building opens to the south, where a grove of slender pines admits the shallow winter sun while protecting from the high summer sun.
