Established in 1975 and headquartered in Winnipeg, we’re proud of our reputation for excellence rooted in three key principles: create innovative design solutions driven by our clients’ needs, vision, budget and schedule; seek client input at each and every stage of the process, ensuring that when the work is completed the project remains an enduring source of pride for its users, owners and community; and ensure that sustainable design solutions provide the affordability, flexibility and durability that our clients require.
The Landscape Architecture department at ft3 was founded in 2006. The department is now comprised of a collective of Landscape Architects who’s evolving body of work is centered on the creation of exterior spaces that enable people to make a connection with their environment, whether in an urban or natural setting. The multi-disciplinary design setting from which staff work, has influenced our approach with a sensibility to the built environment that bridges expert knowledge and is inherently collaborative at all stages of design. The landscape team’s work reflects a range of project types from the inspirational and organic topography of the Carol Shields Memorial Labyrinth to the traditional and outdoor hardscapes created for the Canadian Mennonite University Marpeck Commons.
Ultimately, we believe in the capacity of landscape architecture to enhance physical and emotional well-being, productivity and quality of life. Our mandate is to develop design solutions that work efficiently and effectively for human wellness, and address accessibility at all scales. In 2014, we received the Winnipeg Accessibility Awards Renovation (Outdoor) for the Grace Hospital South Parking Lot Expansion. Intuitive design is no accident. Careful planning, coordination and consultation are key ingredients in design that elevate and inspire in equal measure.
