Project Details

MJ Architectural Studios teamed with Zetah Construction in assisting the White Earth Reservation Tribal Council by upgrading the former Archdeacon Gilfillan Center into their new center for troubled youth now known as Oshki Manidoo “New Spirit” Center.  The complex houses ten buildings, a pool, basketball courts, and a sweat lodge and is licensed for thirty beds.  The primary changes included providing accessible bathrooms and facilities and a new multi-function activity/dining space with new commercial kitchen.
