An addition to Christ the Redeemer Roman Catholic Parish in Swift Current reflects the current and future needs of the parish. The creation of a light-filled, wood-wrapped sanctuary links outside and inside elements and direct a person’s gaze to the altar. New offices and meeting rooms are also part of the addition, allowing for future growth of the congregation.
The Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club (SRFC) engaged P3A as the prime consultant for the SRFC’s fit-up spaces housed in new Mosaic Stadium. The scope of services includes visioning, programming, design, costing, and project management.
This prestigious project includes designing a multitude of dynamic spaces for the SRFC including multi-purpose meeting rooms, training rooms, the team locker room, an auditorium, offices, a signature board room, a jersey shop, and the flagship Rider Store.
The two-storey structure built for the Regina Ladies Softball Association is adjacent to the softball fields in Douglas Park. P3A worked with Wascana Centre Authority to ensure the design complemented the surrounding landscape. The building accommodates change rooms, storage areas, a meeting room and an announcer’s booth. The modest form of the structure is a reflection of its utility and function.
The objective of the Living Hope Alliance Church project was to create a 950-seat worship space that enhanced the spiritual experience, created a welcoming environment, produced better accessibility and flow through the building, and provided flexibility for community use.
Colour was used symbolically: white representing purity and light; purple representing His majesty; turquoise representing healing; yellow representing joy; and the dominant colour of blue signifying hope, grace and freedom. A glass art installation was produced by a local artist, taking inspiration from the northern lights. A cross sits in front of the glass as a reminder to those leaving the church of their spiritual role within the community.
Drawing inspiration from nature, the design for the Prince of Wales Library is based on bringing the outdoors inside; it redefines the library as just a storage place for books into a collaborative space for the community.
Large windows allow for generous amounts of natural light, a cedar plank ceiling creates natural warmth, and playful acoustic clouds define the children’s area. The exterior stone carries seamlessly into the interior, framing the book alcoves. Library shelving can be moved to modify the space for events, and mobile furnishings allow users to arrange the space to meet their needs.
The Prince of Wales Library set a benchmark in sustainable design for public libraries.
This interactive venue celebrates the rich hockey heritage of the province and honours those who made outstanding contributions.
The entrance is evocative of a skating shack, which is how many prairie hockey heroes began their journey. The visitor encounters display cases made from genuine hockey dasher board, a glowing sports desk, display cases, a theatre, a penalty box, interactive games and a hockey stick chandelier. The space was also designed to be flexible, allowing it to transform into unique conference space.

Regent Place Branch of the Regina Public Library (RPL) relocated to allow for additional programming and a fresh approach. RPL is adapting to reflect the 21st century methodology of flexible learning, with the library functioning as a collaborative public space for the community.
The branch acts as a community hub and has been designed to include flexible, interconnected spaces that can be combined or separated to suit the needs of the users. Additional windows were added to increase natural light which is amplified through the open space and colour selection.
This recreational facility located in Melville boasts a 1500 seat arena, running track, fitness centre, convention centre, catering kitchen and administrative offices all connected by a striking lobby. Special consideration was made for favourable acoustics in both the arena and multi-purpose room to provide further opportunities for uses of the centre.
Home of the Melville Millionaires and other teams and clubs, the Centre is a hub for the city and surrounding communities. It is a benchmark in Saskatchewan for facilities of this type.
This feasibility study called for a new cultural heart in downtown Regina, located adjacent to Victoria Park. Through public consultations, the study looked at opportunities for developing the existing site of the Regina Public Library (RPL) as a hub for transit, a new RPL theatre and main branch, the Dunlop Art Gallery, a performing arts theatre, retail opportunities, dining spaces, outdoor cafes, and hotel and leasable office space.
The dynamic proposal provided numerous options over a 50 to 100 year planning horizon. The project remains a conceptual analysis.
The existing building was a significant work of architecture from the 1980’s but it was energy inefficient, did not meet current program requirements or museum standards, and the aesthetic was inconsistent with the values of the Metis people. The challenge was to meet the new building requirements, while maintaining the original heritage value of the facility.
An “additive” approach was undertaken whereby the existing building remained intact, but new elements which addressed the concerns were added. New mechanical and electrical systems as well as building envelope upgrades were integrated without having any impact on the building aesthetics.
The existing Swift Current arena involved extensive renovations and an expansion. The project increased seating for hockey games and incorporated 10 corporate boxes. Added amenities include six sheets of curling ice complete with change rooms and washroom facilities, a social hall, and an upper level curling viewing area with built in flexibility for multi-purpose use.
The arena also boasts the Saskatchewan Hockey Hall of Fame.
Drawing upon the prairie landscape for inspiration, the RCMP Heritage Centre is a national landmark that celebrates the contributions of the RCMP. Designed in association with the late Arthur Erickson and Nick Milcovich Architects of Vancouver, the facility includes a museum, public programming spaces, gift shop, multi-media theatre and administration offices.
The design is a signature architectural expression of the iconic RCMP, honouring its past, present and future.
