Gillam design nets national award

  • Print

TWO Winnipeg architecture firms have won a national award for their design of a new town centre for the northern Manitoba community of Gillam.

The Canadian Architect Award of Merit for Peter Sampson Architecture Studio and Calnitsky Associates Architects was one of 11 national awards announced this week by the magazine Canadian Architect.

The awards are considered the industry's highest recognition for excellence in design. This year's crop of awards included six Awards of Excellence, three Awards of Merit and two Student Awards of Excellence.

This year's awards program attracted 208 submissions from across the country. The two Winnipeg firms were the only Manitoba companies to win an award this year, although others have won in past years.

One of the award judges described the design for the Gillam Town Centre project, which is still under construction, as "very nuanced, realistic, and carefully considered with the city as to what kinds of space they can actually sustain."

Peter Sampson Architecture Studio also won a Prairie Wood Design Award this year for its design of the Foxtail Cafe in Riding Mountain National Park.
