More Information

Cambrian Credit Union was established in 1959 and has grown to be one of the largest in Manitoba. Joining other financial institutions on Broadway, they built this three-storey headquarters in 2001. The design of Winnipeg architect David Goyer follows the by then standard Broadway typology of ground floor set back from, and raised above, the adjacent sidewalk.

Design Characteristics

  • The building’s symmetrical design features clay brick end walls and intermediate fins, topped by bands of Tyndall limestone and large expanses of black glass between them
  • The bowed centre section emphasizes this symmetry - this curved motif is repeated on the east wall, this time in Tyndall limestone
