Tiny Home Village "Astum Api Niikinaahk" - Signage
Signage for Tiny Home Village "Astum Api Niikinaahk"
Astum Api Niikinaahk, meaning "come sit at our home" in Michif, is a remarkable tiny-home village located in Winnipeg. This community, consisting of 22 bachelor-style units, is specifically designed to provide housing for formerly homeless individuals from the indigenous community. Astum Api Niikinaahk serves as a testament to the transformative power of providing shelter and support to those in need.
StateCraft Architectural Fabricators proudly supplied and installed vibrant animal form signs that uniquely identify each unit within the village. To achieve this, we utilized precision waterjet cutting technology to create animal-shaped cutouts on aluminum signs. Each sign was then painted in a color corresponding to the individual unit. The signs are mounted proudly on the exterior walls, creating an impressive 3D effect that enhances both aesthetics and wayfinding within the village.
