Collaboration and Community – Bridgeland Market

As you know, we’ve been working hard to catch up on documenting some of our more recent projects. At the top of the list is the Bridgeland Market. Here are a few teaser images thanks to Robert Scott Photography!


Bridgeland Market has been open and a busy and vibrant hub for a couple of years in the incredible Bridgeland community in Calgary. Yousef Treya envisioned a contemporary take on the traditional corner grocery store where high quality goods and produce mixed freely with conversation and friendship. If you haven’t been there, it is a must. The market is an example of just how great Calgary is becoming.

Although Yousef and his family have been been in business in this building and across the street at Tazza Deli since the 1980’s, he downplays how well the market has filled a need for this and the greater neighborhood and his own creativity and acumen in pulling it all together. Placeworks’ involvement was as a part of a rewarding collaboration with him and Shayne McBride who helped nail down the branding and exterior signage.

The project remains one of our most rewarding. Calgary just needs more folks like the Treya’s!
