WLFN’s Quigli Government Building Wins Architecture Award

Williams Lake First Nation’s administration building on Quigli Drive has won a prestigious architecture award. Rethinking the Future awards 50 prizes per year, and “…aims to bring exceptional works in the field of Architecture the prestige they deserve. The objective of these awards is to raise awareness around the strategies Architects and Designers are employing to deal with the contemporary global challenges, and to bring the best of such projects into the light to inspire the future generations.”

The building was designed by Thinkspace Architecture Planning Interior Design, including team members Ray Wolfe, Ron Hoffart, Cameron Ashe, Arno Compas, Justin Carlos, and Leanne Soligo.

This innovative, inspired building serves a highly functional purpose, but it also makes a profound statement. It speaks to the pride the Williams Lake First Nation has in its heritage and culture, an awareness of the land and natural resources, and the importance of defining its own identity within a physical context.
