Eastman Education Centre.

2006.

Steinbach, Manitoba

The Eastman Education Centre was designed in collaboration with three tenants:  Red River College, Assiniboine Community College and HannoverSchool Division Student Services.

To recognize the needs of a dynamic community, this project was designed to include an interior street; a connective device that serves as a spine for the current and successive phases of the complex. The strong axial parti references German planning traditions and the German roots of the community.

The project includes state-of-the-art teaching facilities and a public meeting room that is open to all tenants and the broader community.

The building’s components are a testament to the pride and commitment of the local community, right down to the exterior finishes which were selected to maximize the use of the local materials, expertise, and labour.

 

This project was undertaken by Corbett Cibinel Architects.
