In 2015, Studio North received the New York ADC Young Guns award that celebrates professionals aged 30 years or younger, among entries from more than 30 countries.

A key feature is the space-saving spiral staircase nestled in a central, made-in-house CNC-kerfed wood screen, where material is removed in a regular pattern to allow the wood to curve.

Also in Banff, in co-operation with LOLA Architecture, Studio North was the lead designer and general contractor for an affordable housing project. In the mountain playground, Studio North was hired to design and build 10 rentable cabins that are completely wheelchair accessible.

Parks Canada has a mandate to provide more amenities and accommodations, and there is a noticeable gap in the number of current rentals available for people with disabilities. That demographic is increasing and Studio North is using its expertise to design others in Banff.
