Tasiurvik Childcare Centre

Inukjuak,
Nunavik,  2005

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. 

In the village of Inukjuak, the childcare centre’s playground already had play installations, but these were not installed according to safety standards. We moved them and added other installations such as a wooden platform offering a safe space for younger children. A tricycle path, a shed, a tire trail, a musical instrument and a forest of tree stumps were installed as well. A great musk ox and geese bring a fun and lively presence to the design.
