Compact Living for Downtown Rossland

By | Architecture, Design | No Comments

Sourdough Row, a proposed 7-unit, mixed-use building in the heart of downtown Rossland may soon add six compact residential suites and one commercial space to downtown Rossland.  The building will occupy a long standing vacant area along the historic alley known as Sourdough Row, located just off Spokane Street, half a block north of Columbia Avenue.  This prime location will offer residents easy walking access to all of Rossland’s downtown services and views south towards the mountains.

Active Learning Spaces for Nelson’s Wildflower School

By | Architecture, Design | No Comments

Nelson’s Wildflower School asked Studio 9 to envision how they could transform blank, spacious hallways into active learning spaces for their students.  A learning hub at the intersection of the hallways and a social stair with storage cabinets and slide were some of the ideas we came up with.  The Parent Advisory Committee is currently seeking funding to complete the project.  These permanent installations will dramatically improve the function of the over-sized hallways in this century old school and offer the students unique spaces for creative forms of learning and sharing.
