Design is in the details. The Oilers Entertainment Group's office space is inspired by the arena next door with bank tiered seating, staff lockers, and a centre ice zone. We added elegant elements like this Vibia light fixture to ensure the final design didn't feel gimmicky. The result? A refined space, worthy of the #Oilers legacy. #Oilers #InteriorDesign #ICEDistrict #yegdt #dialog

The design of Edmonton International Airport’s Combined Office and Control Tower was inspired by the prairie landscape surrounding the airport. It’s an iconic structure designed to fit naturally within the high, waving grass or blowing snow on the neighbouring fields. The undulating lines of sculptural zinc cladding maximizes daylight on the north side and allows for shading on the south side.
