Behchokǫ̀ Cultural Centre Construction

Behchokǫ̀ Cultural Centre Construction

Project Start Date: May 11, 2019

Estimated Project Completion Date: End of 2023

The New Behchokǫ̀ Cultural Centre and Community Presence Office Building is designed around two elements: a large drum-shaped hall (accommodating 500+ people) and the Community Presence Office, which is wrapped around a circular meeting space. The building design centres on important Tłı̨chǫ cultural elements and is integrated intimately with the land, water and surrounding views. Tłı̨chǫ citizens can canoe right up to the facility in summer months.

This facility will display local art and history, and is intended to function as a primary gathering space for community members, for both formal and informal events and activities. The main lobby features movable display cases, wall graphics and digital displays, and will be curated in consultation with designated cultural curators in the community. 

Tłı̨chǫ Community Builders is the contractor for the new Cultural Centre that is located in Behchokǫ̀, NWT, right beside Marian Lake. The building gross area is approximately 1504 m2. The facility is intended to hold local gatherings, events, and activities. The main feature is the drum-shaped Cultural Hall with windows all around to allow natural lighting to enter, and large windows that overlook the lake.
