Located at 1600 Buffalo Place, architectural firm Smith Carter has designed Winnipeg’s first LEED Platinum Certification building, awarded the Canada Green Building Council.
The building was strategically sited to produce emphatic views from outside-in and inside-out. A horizontal box cantilevers over the prairie grassland acting as a suspended billboard to the highway traffic beyond, as the interior volume frames the spruce forest, expressing a microcosm of the Manitoba landscape.
