Inspiration from architect:

The building was constructed by members of the community, using local trees. It is heated and cooled using geothermal energy from a decommissioned municipal well. It uses 43% less energy than a conventional building of comparable size. It forms a protective south facing space around a medicine garden and medicine wheel that forms the physical centre of the community.
