THE CREDIT UNION CUPLEX
North Battleford, Saskatchewan
The focus of our site development was the establishment of a public square or courtyard bordered on three sides by building facades. The enclosed square concept has precedence throughout history and the world, creating important community spaces that become significant to the fabric of the City.
At this time, the project program includes the following components:
• An aquatics component complete with 2 waterslides, 6 lane competition pool, adventure river and wave pool
• A performance theatre with seating for 350 persons, multipurpose/rehearsal space and a variety of support areas.
• A curling component with 6 sheets of ice, lounge, change rooms and support spaces.
• A fieldhouse component complete with two indoor fields, change rooms and seating for 250 per field.
The entrance of each facility penetrates the boundary edge of the square opening up the wall, welcoming the public to the individual buildings. Each building is unified by a public architecture appropriate for each facility but unique to each function.
Overall, this new multipurpose facility is intended to be a central focus for the region, bringing the community and surrounding areas together.
