This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today, we hear from Marika Drolet-Ferguson & Mathieu Boucher-Côté Nordais Architecture in Tracadie.
WE WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR REGION AND TRY TO DEMOCRATIZE ARCHITECTURE A LITTLE MORE, EDUCATE, CONTRIBUTE TO THE LOCAL CULTURE WITH OUR SERVICES.
We are interested in how a space influences our everyday well-being and the positive impact a project brings to the community in which it is integrated. We see construction as an opportunity to reflect on the use of the planet’s resources, positioning architecture as a pivotal point to foster a responsible attitude towards our environment.
The past year has shown us how communities can come together and be inventive for any project they care about. There have been so many examples of collaborations that have developed among local partners, and local networks, in general, have solidified for the benefit of all.
We are in the midst of renovations to our Tracadie office and, in between the work and projects, we are sharing our accomplishments with the community via our website and the media. We also want to expand our network of collaborators and we are very motivated by the prospect of future collaborations. Supporting local businesses has a real impact because it contributes to our living environment and benefits the whole community.
