Brent Bellamy is an architect, creative director, urbanist and columnist with the Winnipeg Free Press. Among his many notable accomplishments is his recent selection as this year’s winner of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s Advocate for Architecture Award. We sat down with Brent to ask him about his approach to design, where he gets inspiration from and what motivates him to publicly share his views on architecture, design and urbanism.

As a business person, it's sometimes easy to forget what a huge influence your work environment has on the productivity, morale and overall well-being of your staff and clients alike.

The process of renovating an office is both daunting and exciting. The reward of a transformative new workplace is delayed until the design and construction process is completed and the myriad of logistical details are executed. And, before the new space can become a reality the old one must go.
A group of Number TEN Winnipeg staff were sent down the street to the old workplace at 115 Bannatyne Avenue to help speed up the demolition process. With some coordination and assistance from our Workplace Interiors design team and contractor J&J Penner Construction, we entered the old office setup for one last time. As you can see, it was a total blast!
Number TEN’s Winnipeg new office construction will run from March 4 to August 1st, 2019. Once complete, we’ll return to the same location in the heart of the Exchange District. In the meantime, our Winnipeg team is working down the street at our temporary office – Camp-10 – at 200 Waterfront Drive. Stay tuned to numberten.com and our social media pages for more news and updates on our innovative workplace renovation.

With an office distinguished by character, a collegial environment and delight in the creative process, design culture is integral to the Number TEN philosophy. We are always on the look-out for innovative ways to communicate, design and build. Recently, the Number TEN spirit of design culture was further strengthened through Design Interns Aaron Pollock and Victoria McCrea’s work in the development of what has come to be known as ‘The Ministry of Competitions’.
