Peguis First Nation

Personal Care Home

Peguis First Nation, Manitoba

Peguis PCH is a new 4,950 sq.m. (53,281 sq.ft.), 40 bed care facility for the Peguis First Nation located 1.5 hours north of Winnipeg.

The design reflects the ‘household’ model of care whereby residents are immersed in a home-like environment with 10 residents per cluster. The smaller groupings allow each home to have its own kitchenette, dining room and living/activity space; larger gatherings are held in a central multipurpose room large enough to accommodate residents and visitors. The ‘downtown’ area includes a café servery and seating area, hair care, and tuck shop to enhance the social and experiential lives of the staff, residents, and visitors. Residents have access to common outdoor gardens via a screened ‘porch’ which connects a series of walkable pathways, accessible planters and native plantings.

The facility is designed to reflect First Nations' culture. Appropriate use of natural materials, such as heavy timber columns throughout, blends the natural and constructed environments. The facility is designed to meet high energy standards and utilize geothermal heating and cooling.

Currently in the working drawing stage, construction is slated for 2017.
