Project Profile: Jonah Amitnaag School and Community Centre
Baker Lake, Nunavut
The Nunavut Government has prepared guidelines for good building practice for northern facilities to assist designers with reducing problems and eliminating past mistakes. Building overhangs are discouraged and special attention is encouraged regarding mechanical air intakes and exhausts regarding ice build-up and infiltration of fine blowing snow. The new school reflects these guidelines.
