What we did:
- Website design and development
Cree Village Eco Lodge is a 21st-century facility that honours the Cree ancestral past. The entire building blends subtle cultural elements with environmentally advanced design and operations through energy efficient construction and systems. They use natural fibres and materials throughout the building.
They offer a 20-room facility featuring 17 Deluxe Rooms, one Author’s Suite, one Conference Suite, and one Jacuzzi Suite.
The main architectural feature of the Eco Lodge is the Great Hall. This is the lodge’s main gathering place and it is modeled on a traditional Cree dwelling called a “Shaapuhtuwaan,” which literally translates to “long teepee with doors at each end.” These are made by erecting two sets of teepee poles and extending a ridge pole between the two tops. Dining in the Shaapuhtuwaan’s immense pine and cedar structure overlooking the grandeur of the Moose River provides a truly awe inspiring experience that offers views of magnificent sunsets, and our striking night skies.
This amazing setting was the highlight of the website we created for the Eco Lodge. Potential visitors get to see the amazing details, scenery, and inspiring photographs of the building and its surroundings. The layout was tailored to invite guests to read more and draw them in using the natural beauty of Moose Factory.
The website was created in WordPress is easily updated by their staff, keeping constant with updates and news required for their guests.
