Number TEN Architectural Group, in association with Toronto-based figure3, have been selected to design TDS Law’s new office space at True North Square in downtown Winnipeg. Occupying the top three floors of True North Square Tower 1, the new design will energize and redefine TDS Law’s workplace environment with a focus on improving the client experience, enhancing workplace efficiency, and integrating new technologies that address the evolving nature of legal practices in Canada.
"Number TEN is excited to work with TDS Law as project leaders for their significant investment in the continued transformation of downtown Winnipeg. Our talented group of interior designers, architects and project managers are ready to deliver a leading-edge workplace environment that reflects TDS’ forward-thinking vision as one of the anchor tenants of True North Square.”
Number TEN’s design team is bolstered by figure3’s extensive experience designing world class office space for some of Canada’s most innovative legal practices. “The practice of law continues to evolve and modernise as we’ve seen through our experience partnering with many of Canada’s leading law firms,” says figure3 principal and lead interior designer Allan Guinan.
“TDS has set out a vision for a more efficient and collaborative firm culture. We’re looking forward to the challenge of defining the next generation of law firm design by providing dynamic solutions that directly address these needs”.
After a remarkable 31-year tenure as a Partner with Number TEN, Robert Eastwood completed his carefully planned transition in March to his new role as a senior advisor to the firm. To the casual observer, it may appear as though not much has changed. Eastwood still works out of the same office, still puts in countless hours working on projects, and apart from a recent low-key office celebration of his professional accomplishments, work continues on much as before. In short, he is still the same person he always was: a hard-working family man who lives and breathes architecture.

Number TEN’s commitment to innovation was well-demonstrated in the last few months as Number TEN Partner and Practice Leader Greg Hasiuk attended a number of local and national symposiums, workshops and events on the theme of innovation in the 21st century.
In February, Greg attended the Canadian Construction Innovations (CCI) annual general meeting in Toronto. Established in 2009, CCI is committed to facilitating communication and teamwork within the construction industry in order to promote and streamline industry-wide innovation.
