Urban Systems is a consulting company with offices spread across Western Canada. They work with the government, Indigenous communities, and the private sector on urban planning, transportation, and water systems. aodbt has had a long standing relationship with Urban Systems, collaborating both on client project work and also designing their previous Saskatoon Office in 2013.
In 2021, the team at Urban Systems engaged aodbt again to design a new, larger office space for them in the heart of downtown Saskatoon. Through engagement with the core team, our team was able to learn more about what their office culture looks like in a post pandemic work environment and sought ways to create an inviting office space for both employee retention and recruitment.
Balancing open office work areas with private meeting rooms and phone booths was critical to giving employees workspace options. The staff lounge space is a modern space to relax and collaborate with peers. It included large oversized doors to open the space for larger events and gatherings. The result is a modern office filled with natural daylight, balanced with dark rich tones and accented with warm wood finishes & features. The team developed a palette that is professional and neutral yet full of depth, texture, and visual interest. Creating flexible workspaces that allowed for future growth was key to the project and future planning for Urban Systems.
