Cunard Street Live Work Grow

The new home for FBM is constructed on a brown field site in the north end of Halifax close to the city commons. The design embodies the values of our studio—a place for ‘people-driven design’. This is done through the interaction with the surrounding community, within the materials and tectonics of the architecture, and through the work culture that the building supports. Conversations with everybody within FBM were particularly important, especially since the firm has grown rapidly and consists of planners, interior designers, technologists, architects, and support staff. The project is one of the first significant multi-storey mass timber structures in Atlantic Canada and is part of ongoing research with Dalhousie University and NSCC on the use of sustainable building materials and embodied carbon in the built environment.
