Qualico Communities asked Nadi to develop a cohesive Urban Development Protocol for Sage Creek Village Centre in Winnipeg. The client envisioned tree-lined streets, walkways, markets, shops, restaurants and offices, establishing a model community with over 3000 multi-family housing units and 12,000 square feet of commercial space.
Inspired by small and large-scale commercial design, residential mixed-use developments and a variety of multi-family developments, we created a framework that encompassed over 60-acres of land. Our goal was to create an eclectic style where each unit’s entrance and the facade is different and distinguished from the units beside it. To achieve this, we used a variety of materials and finishes such as lighting, canopies, and the use of dominant colours and materials.
We defined land-use categories, building typologies and street-scape massing into a cohesive village of architectural expression. Sage Creek has become one of Winnipeg fastest growing neighbourhoods, boasting high standards of livability, walkability and comfort.
