DTAH is thrilled to announce Eltuek Arts Centre has been awarded a Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence in Architecture from the Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA). Presented annually, the awards celebrate architectural achievements in the province and the way in which great architecture brings well-being to those who spend time in these thoughtfully designed spaces.
In presenting the award to the design team, the Office of the Lieutenant Governor remarked that, “the strength of this project is the broad community that imagined it, made it happen, and will now carry it forward. The energy and wisdom of New Dawn Enterprises, and the Elders Advisory Committee from the Island’s five Mi’kmaw communities will assure that the Eltuek Art Centre remains welcoming, affordable and relevant to the artists and the community. The community’s vision and commitment from the very beginning should be recognized.”
Completed in 2020, Eltuek Arts Centre transforms a former Convent and school into a vibrant space for Cape Breton’s arts community. DTAH, in collaboration with Trifos Design Consultants, led the architecture and landscape architecture for the centre.
