Happy Holidays!

We just wanted to pass on best wishes for the holiday season to you all.

Don’t hesitate to reach out to placeworks if you need any assistance in addressing your design and project needs, or even in trying to define those. Whether your project is residential or commercial, we can help you start things moving by having an initial discussion and answering questions you may have – and let you get to know us and our capabilities at the same time.

Here are a few quick images that we took of a great residential project in Marda Loop just completed in time for the holiday break. They’ll have to do until we get our photographer in to work their magic and truly capture the results of a great collaboration with our wonderful clients.

Enjoy, and of course, Happy New Year from us all!

Questions to Ask an Architect or Designer


Whether you are renovating or building new, taking on an architectural/design project can be daunting due to the grand effects it will have on your life both during and after the process. You are going to need to be able to trust, rely on, and get along with your architect or designer so it is important to pick the one most suited to you, your project type, and your budget.

Sandrin Construction Ltd.


We have added another wonderful, local builder to the Partners page on our website…. Sandrin Construction Ltd. is just wrapping up construction on a residential project that we designed and we must say that their work is spectacular! With a high attention to detail and a desire to make the client happy in a now-functional space, Sandrin Construction executed a fine exterior and interior renovation. At our last site visit, we were blown away by the transformation of the house; instead of outdated and cramped, the new floor plan and finishes create a comfortable space that looks fresh and welcoming. If you’d like to see more of their work, you can find them on our Partners page or you can visit http://www.sandrinconstruction.com/

Construction is underway on Kelvin Grove – time for another image…

Kelvin Grove Living placework’s interesting project in Kelvin Grove in SW Calgary has begun construction so everyone is a bit excited.
Braden has been working his magic along with Magda on the interior so we thought we’d share this new image of the living room that opens up into the tremendous backyard. 75′ wide lots have their advantages.
