Natturak Childcare Centre

Inukjuak,
Nunavik,  2014

Since 2003, Mousse Architecture de Paysage has collaborated with the Kativik Regional Administration of Nunavik (Great Northern Quebec) to design, build, inspect and maintain in a good state all the playgrounds in the territory’s childcare centres. These 18 playgrounds located in 14 villages were all directly designed with the centre’s community. Mousse traveled to the villages to meet the people, analyze the site and design the projects. 

These playgrounds, representative of the Inuit population, integrated elements of their culture and environment as well as modern playground elements. This was done with the goal of having playgrounds serving the territory’s childcare centres, safe and fun playgrounds that children and educators can enjoy together. 

To know more about the projet

For the Natturak Childcare Centre in Inukjuak, our visit of the site and our meeting with the childcare centre’s employees brought many ideas that were then included into the design. Polar bears, killer whales and sled dogs co-exist with traditional play equipements, musical instruments, a large wooden shed and a tricycle path. Pleasant and fun, the playground is a shelter for the centre’s young children.
