NOVEMBER 06, 2018 AT 13:06



By invitation of the Department of Art at the University of Lethbridge, One One Ten Principal Architect, Spencer Court presented in the Architecture & Design Now Lecture Series as a guest of Professor Victoria Baster on the topic of the collective architectural practice, One One Ten, and recent works.

Paradigm Lost: New Modalities in Architectural Practice
6:00pm November 5, 2018 - Room L1060

"The structure of future architectural practice may more closely resemble a consultancy of independent collaborative specialists - creative, strategic, research-based, multi-disciplinary - who come together under the guidance of a team director. Spencer will describe external factors shaping architectural practices today and the emergence of his own studio and other nimble practices adapting to the speed of change within professional and related fields in Canada and abroad. Court will finally review a handful of southern Alberta projects the practice has been working toward since its inception."

February 4, 2018 AT 11:14

Those who had paid more in design fees (e.g. to an Architect or, in some cases, a licensed professional Interior Designer) were overwhelmingly more satisfied than those who had paid low consulting fees. Why this surprising result?

The busy site of Market at Crossings in West Lethbridge will begin to open its first phase to the public after nearly a year of construction beginning with well-known Canadian restaurant Tim Horton's by mid-May along newly constructed Carinthia Road West. Very soon after Loblaws 'No Frills' grocer and fueling station (completed by Myclex Construction) will be serving the community by mid-June. Boston Pizza and Subway restaurants are poised to open in July weeks prior to Original Joe's bar and restaurant along Whoop-Up Drive. Rice King and other soon to be announced retailers will come along later this summer. Rexall Pharmacy and joint medical clinic at the west end along Whoop-Up are targetting early fall of this year.

One One Ten partnered with Gibbs Gage Architects and Royop Development Corporation of Calgary to deliver the Market at Crossings, a multi-phase commercial retail development in West Lethbridge.

We have been very pleased to be a part of this new work in Lethbridge which raises the bar for commercial development in southern Alberta. Elan Construction Ltd. of Calgary, Alberta has delivered an exceptional project for Lethbridge in phase one quite unlike most commercial development and been a wonderful team to work with for the duration.
