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

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.

Studio 9 is proud to announce the start of a great new relationship with Red Mountain Ventures.  Studio 9 has been selected to assist the development team at Red Mountain Ventures to design several new additions for Red Mountain Ski Resort.  After successfully raising $10M as part of their Fight the Man, Own the Mountain campaign, Red Mountain is ready to move into Phase 2 of their ski and recreation area development plan.  Some of the additions include expansions to Paradise Lodge, High Performance Ski Rental Shop, and the Main Lodge.  Much of this work is in anticipation of the completion of the Josie Hotel for the 2017-2018 ski season.

As part of Red Mountain’s ongoing base area development, Studio 9 is also working on preliminary designs for a new 50 bed hostel expected to be completed within the next two years.  You can view this video of for a summary of Red’s Fight the Man, Own the Mountain crowdfunding campaign – a first of its kind in the ski resort industry.
