We Are Ready to Ship Ground!

The Manitoba Trucking Association recently celebrated a ribbon cutting and dedication of their new office and training facility. We were honored to have worked with this client to expand their capabilities to serve the growing Manitoba trucking industry.

The standard shipping container, primarily used for intermodal freight transport is a quintessential symbol of the trucking industry. Therefore we designed it as an integral part of experiencing the Manitoba Trucking Association’s new facility. Serving as a gateway, the shipping container was painted MTA red in contrast with the main palette of grays that make up the balance of the façades.

The building boasts a large boardroom designed specifically for the association’s business meetings, open and closed executive sized offices, lounge space, smaller breakout meeting rooms, wide corridors with intuitive wayfinding, strategic support spaces and purpose-built intimate training rooms which open up into a larger seminar space.

Due to the dimensional size of the building, it was important to consider ways to draw natural light into the inner-most spaces. Structural glazed walls, doors and skylights were implemented throughout the facility to ensure occupant enjoyment.

The Manitoba Trucking Association is open to the public during regular business hours. We encourage you go and experience the new facility!

 

 

THESE BRICKS HAVE A STORY TO TELL

Volume one of our renewal series is a hotel conversion located at 258 Burnell Street.

258 Burnell Street was originally home to the Canada Bread Company built in 1912, who boasted “fourteen ovens that could bake four-hundred loaves an hour“. The original site included a stable building (now demolished) for the teams of horses that delivered bread. With its remaining stately proportions and solid stoic structure we can’t help but feel that the spirit of the building embraces a sense of sanctuary nicely lending itself to its repurposing as residences.

Within this study, we will enthusiastically endeavor to bring a seamless refinement and ennobled lifestyle by meticulously considering every angle and proportional detail with a mature understanding of understated elegance, the prerequisite of a discerning modern lifestyle.

Please join us in our journey to transcend time and trends as we attempt to take from the best of each era and combine it with modern design aesthetic and construction methods.

Watch for future updates!
