Architecture and design firm Perkins and Will is expanding its Canadian practice in Calgary after 20 years to increase the capacity to provide architectural, interior, and urban design services to clients in Alberta.
A Calgary-based design team will now be able to offer an enhanced level of service to its growing network of clients, the firm said. With access to the firm’s global resources, the studio is able to leverage international expertise in a broad array of practice areas and work collaboratively with other studios on projects of all sizes and complexities.
Some of the firm’s most well-known built projects in the city include the Energy Environment Experiential Learning building at the University of Calgary, the Aqua and Vento multi-family residential development, and the Calgary Public Building restoration.
Current works include a mixed-used project in Calgary’s Chinatown in partnership with Hon Developments that will help to revitalize the historical urban neighbourhood, and the Interdisciplinary Science and Innovation Centre at the University of Calgary, a new state-of-the-art academic building that will transform the east campus gateway.
“We are enthusiastic about our city’s future and the opportunity to create buildings and places where people and communities can thrive,” said Marc Haberli, an associate and co-leader of the Calgary studio.
