The Batchewana First Nation of Ojibway Indians engaged IDEA to design a new Health Station on the Rankin Reserve. This facility provides essential health care services to reserve members. It contains public health clinics as well as private physicians and others. The building is seen as an important addition to the community because its architecture incorporates the long-lost building type tradition of the Longhouse known to the Ojibway people for com-munity gathering, health, and wellbeing. Materials such as copper, cedar, and natural stone were used because of their cultural significance. This project was the recipient of a prestigious Ontario Woodworks Award.
