The Kativik Regional Government (KRG) provides support to the municipalities of Nunavik as well as public services to the residents of Nunavik.

In order to address the chronic housing shortage while limiting sprawl in Nunavik communities, the KRG sought to develop efficient high density housing units. Panaq designed a fourplex modeled on the rowhouse typology.

It is served by a common mechanical room, creating greater density and improving energy efficiency and performance.
