We believe that architecture is a social calling and can be an agent of social change. Earlier this year, we set-up 'Studio North Extra' to coordinate and strategise our "Extra" activities here in the North. SNEx will be hosting an Instagram takeover in the future, but in the meantime, take a peek at these photos from our #childrendreamacity workshops in collaboration with @notquitelight ! As this is our last takeover post, it's goodbye for now from us all in Studio North! . . . #salford #littlearchitects #social #socialvalue #studionorth #hawkinsbrown #manchester

#FrameItFriday (week 18, season 2) So this is the SECOND time I've had to write this because I forgot to save a draft and lost the entire blog (waaa-waaa). This is a more flattering shot of #Bullwinkle In a nutshell this is what I have to say: 1)Moose get ticks that hang around until spring and bug the crap out of the moose. They aren't of the Lyme disease carrying type but they make the moose so itchy it licks and bites them off instead of eating...so they look starved and have mange but it's not mange. 2) the ice is not quite out on the lake yet but a whole bunch of loon couples have returned and are all "squished" in a small open section of the lake (like the departure lounge at the airport during spring break when they cancel all flights due to weather conditions) Every night this week, once it gets dark it's like the Battle for Winterfell (only #GOT fans will get this) with lots of screams and hollers coming from said loons on the lake. 3) the supposed "waterproof" boots I bought and bragged about how dry they kept my feet last year have passed their warranty and sprung leaks. In case you don't recall, wet boots REEK...I tried to dry them over the heat vent but the husband and the cat thought I was trying to poison them and had the dry heaves, so the boots sat out on the porch last night. Since they're the only pair of shoes I brought I must put the stinking soggy things back on my feet to go to town and buy another pair. I pity anyone who comes within 100 yards of me. I must go now as I've places to explore and I'm in need of proper footwear. Wish me luck! Have a great weekend. Peace, love and kumbaya Heather #CanonGirl #TeamCanon #PhotoBlog #StudioNorth #HeatherCardlePhotographer

Here’s a place I made it to although the waterproof boots? They don’t work. Looking for recommendations for a sturdy pair of boots that are waterproof any ideas folks? This as far as I got up the trail today but it was worth it I think. #HighFalls #StudioNorth #HeatherCardlePhotographer

#FrameItFriday (week 17, season 2) How'd your week go? Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am AND I'm ready to go hang out in the woods. The zoo was fun and the animals were exciting to see but I think I want to see some in their natural surroundings. Unfortunately, due to lack of sponsorship I won't be going on an African Safari any time soon but I will be heading up to #StudioNorth in a few days time and that is just what the doctor ordered! No I'm not sick, but my husband is a doctor and he says "we gotta go up north". I always do what the doctor says, most of the time. lol I've been biding my time (aka paying some bills) by doing some real estate photography. I have for a few years now but with the spring market picking up I am getting very busy (which is a good thing). Not very good timing with my escape to the North, oh well. I do get to see some beautiful properties and a few dumps. The photo I've used in my blog today was from one of the beautiful homes I shot at this past week. It won't be ready for market for a couple of weeks yet. I "accidentally " left my boots and sweater in the shot so I could use it on my photo page. Don't you just love the doorway? The whole home had some incredible architectural features and cool upgrades. Very Gothic, built in 1872 by a chap who's bride was coming from England to live in it and she never showed up. Too bad for her because it's a beautiful home. I'd live there in a heartbeat. Well, it's time for me to go pack for Studio North. If you've got any ideas for places for me to explore up in the Algonquin/Bancroft area, send me a message. As always, feel free to like, share, comment on my blog. Peace, love and kumbaya Heather #PhotoBlog #CanonGirl #BrantfordPhotographer #TeamCanon #HeatherCardlePhotographer #HeritageHome

Here’s a sneak peak of our submission for the Edmonton Missing Middle competition, The Goodweather. Our strategy focuses on providing a mix of dwellings for people at different stages in life: ground floor barrier free living for seniors, two story townhouses for families, and compact lofts for students and young professionals. The design includes a central community courtyard that all the dwellings face on to so that residents can mingle and get to know one another.

Meet the Studio Northerners! Gary Bovill, Senior Designer, is the latest recruit to our studio team.

Your home should tell the story of your life and shelter the things you love. As part of a recent proposal we put together the 5 design principles that we live by at Studio North. 1 . EQUALITY Good design is for everyone, not just the privileged few. We’re enthusiastic about creating spaces for people to live meaningful and connected lives. 2. SUSTAINABILITY The environment that surrounds us is a constant source of inspiration and influence for design. Taking the sun, the wind, and the landscape into consideration early in the design is important to our process. 3. CREATIVITY Your home is an expression of who you are. We design homes that are not only a product of our creativity, but also allow for our clients to put their own touch on the space. 4. ACTIVITY We believe that homes should be designed to suit the changing needs of today's families. As societal values shift and redefine notions of home, we listen and learn to how people want to live and design based on that foundation. 5. ECONOMY Good design shouldn’t be needlessly expensive. While creating exceptional design, we intend to focus on simple, yet impactful spaces that are appreciated and attainable by everyone. . . . . #studionorth #yycliving #designprinciples #designlife #illustration #architecture #showitbetter #dailydesigncentral #digitaldrawing #illustrarch #illustrationoftheday #designillustration #designmilk #graphicdesigncentral #axo_madness #studioofblo #archisource #arch_grap @letsshowitbetter #architectureonpaper #kntxtr #representation @littleblackbox.ny @drawing_architecture @illustrarts @archisource

Now we’d like to introduce Mark Erickson and Matthew Kennedy, who have created dozens of installations that recognise that better design can lead to a better life. These individuals met at a university art class in Calgary and were connected by their passions. Erickson’s work experience has helped broaden his understanding of how architecture is shaped according to culture, climate, geography and ways of living. Kennedy connects his passions of design with community and focuses on developing a strategy for laneway housing in Calgary’s inner city communities. You can follow their projects @studio_north and click the link in our bio for tickets if you know you can’t miss out on these two!

As a lead up to our heritage talk on April 4, we have some pro tips to share about restoring and renovating your heritage home. 1. ITS ALL ABOUT CHARACTER. Determine the existing features in your home that you want to highlight and preserve. These are the authentic elements that older homes have and newer homes try to replicate, so make them stand out to define your home’s character. . . . #heritage #restoration #preservation #studionorth #design #build #yyc #calgary #yycliving #yychomes #yycevents #heritagehome #renovation

#FrameItFriday (week 9, season 3) Question for you all today (oh by the way, happiest of Friday's to you) Question: When you're not working your butt off week after week paying the bills, going for groceries, taking care of pets, kids, significant others...you know "adulting". What would YOU like to be able to do, uninterrupted for a few hours instead of "all that regular" stuff. Something that doesn't really cost you (nothing that you have to win the lottery for, because, well.....the odds of winning suck now don't they?). Something like a hobby, you know what I'm saying? A really good friend of mine bought me a cool book called "Mandalas for Meditation". It's a scratch-off book. It kind of reminds me of when I was a kid and I loved doing Doodle Arts (huge posters you'd colour with the markers that came with it). As a child I'd spend hours working on them. I'm asking out of sheer nosiness. I'm also asking because I have nothing exciting photography wise to discuss with you all this week. Truth be told I'd rather be IN the photo for a while on a time-out, snuggled beneath the blanket, sipping on that glass of wine and playing with my scratch-off book. I know, first world problems right? Not every week can be like rainbows and butterflies.

“Drawing from #lighthouselenses and analog #lightprojection , Device for Summoning Rainbows speaks to light as a medium for sending messages across vast dark spaces, drawing attention, signaling danger or change ahead. Every colour we see is just a small band of visible light in a larger collection of wavelengths from cosmic rays, to gamma rays, x-rays, microwaves, radar, radio, and beyond. Intended as an interjection of the visible light spectrum into the darkness of winter in Calgary, this device is a #prototype for a larger public artwork called LIGHT KEEPER, soon-to-be installed at Aitken Place Park in Toronto through Waterfront Toronto.” Photos and writing courtesy of our collaborators @incandescentcloud #studionorth #yyc #calgaryevents #design #publicart #calgary

#FrameItFriday (week 6, season 3) I've done alot of driving this past week, mostly to the same destination.....Algonquin Park. It's quite a hike, even from where I'm coming from. I'm not complaining, I finally had a chance to see my first Pine Marten and Grey Jay. Alas, not one single solitary moose. sniff. I give up on my quest for the elusive Moose. If it wants to meet me, it can do it through the proper channels and message me thru Facebook about a coffee date. One person I didn't get to meet is Joe the Elk Man. If any of my Bancroft peeps can point me in the right direction to find him and his place, shoot me a message. The well intentioned man who runs the gas station up the road told me about him and gave me "country" directions (right at the last street before the bridge, left at the "T" (which was a "t" not a "T") and Joe's gate is red. I drove for what felt like FOREVER yesterday along the winding dirt and snow covered road and ended up turning around. I didn't see a red gate, bet Joe painted it. I really want to try and find Joe's place, he turns 90 tomorrow and I've heard he likes Jagermeister. I'll bring him some in exchange for seeing his Elk herd. Yes, I bait my subjects sometimes ;) Mother Nature and snowplows have a subtle way of showing where you "can't" go in the winter. This is my 2nd year up in this area and a number of the access points to adventure and landscapes that are available in the summer are blocked. I've had to do alot of improv. I don't mind a hike but I don't want to end up being the one they send a St.Bernard out to find. Besides, my camera battery lasts about as long as me out there in the bitter cold. There's huge fluffy snowflakes falling right now, time to go out and grab some scenery shots. Have a great weekend everyone!

#ChickPicotheDay ! (Day 2,629) First time I've ever seen this bird in my whole life. This little cutie won a contest, it was selected as the National Bird of Canada thru National Geographic, it's called a Grey Jay. It's larger than a Cardinal but smaller than a Blue Jay. It's also goes by the name of Whisky Jack, Canada Jay or Camp Robber (such a bad-ass bird lol) • • • • • #GreyJay #GrayJay #WhiskeyJack #CanadaJay #CampRobber #AlgonquinPark #ShotOnCanon #CanonGirl #BrantfordPhotographer #StudioNorth #HeatherCardlePhotographer

“Sometimes, i think we have a tendency to give up when we don’t see big, immediate results.” - @khill_fit . this is why i have always loved lifting! for the last 6.5 weeks, i have been doing a lifting program and i absolutely love it, because i think that lifting gets me results fast and i can see actual results when my biceps or booty start to pop. . I’M SCARED. for this new cardio program. it’s only 20 minutes, but i hate cardio! i’ve always hated running and whenever i run out of breath or start to really sweat, i just want to quit. i’m so proud if where i’m at right now, and excited to see where i’ll go! . i NEED YOU to keep me accountable. what if the program gives me asthma? what if it makes me sweat so much that my eczema will flare up? what if it’s too hard and i have no motivation to workout everyday? what if i can’t fit a workout in 6 days a week? . what if i turn these questions into positives... what if it makes me feel refreshed to sweat? what if this program transforms my body to some place it’s never been before? what if this program makes me start to like cardio?! . i am scared, but also so excited to start this program with a bunch of other people who are ready to change their lives. are you ready to join the 40,000 others who decided to take control of their own health? VIP early access only on sale for one more day! message me if you have any questions☺️ i’ll just be over here drinking my shakes, getting results, and waiting for you to say YES, too😍❣️

Such a pleasure to be part of #IDSToronto #DesignTO again this year with #UrbanFabric and our new Ontario rep @foundedbygarcia. It was 10 years ago I submitted a proposal to #IDS #StudioNorth for an aerial-patterned rug of the #Canadian #Prairies. Since then, the concept has grown to include #city #grid #rugs from around the globe. Pictured here is our new #Barcelona rug, depicting the collision of the old city #fabric with #Cerda ’s #eixample expansion, characterized by its octagonal city blocks. #interiordesign #design #Barcelona #BCN #FullCircle #AndreuWorld #chair #ids19 Visit www.urbanfabric.ca to view the whole collection.
