DIALOG and newstudio architecture inc. have announced they have merged as one, with the team at newstudio joining DIALOG’s office in Edmonton.
DIALOG is a multi-disciplinary design firm incorporating architectural, engineering, interior design, urban design, sustainability and landscape architecture. newstudio is a boutique firm of eight designers who share a vision to improve the wellbeing of communities. Led by Tai Ziola and Tyler Dixon, newstudio’s portfolio includes a variety of multi-family residential, urban infill, smaller scale institutional, and re-zoning projects. Their work has made a positive impact throughout Edmonton with projects as unsuspecting as a sports field spotter’s box, to renovations at the recently completed Agriculture Life and Environmental Sciences Atrium at the University of Alberta.
“There’s a lot of great things about this for both parties,” says newstudio partner Tyler Dixon. “The merger will allow newstudio and DIALOG to extend our collective expertise further than we’d each be able to do on our own.”
“We’ve found a great partner with newstudio,” says DIALOG firm managing principal Jim Anderson. “Not only do they share our vision and live our values, but they also challenge us to engage with our community at a much deeper level. We believe that merging with newstudio will allow us to meaningfully improve the wellbeing of our communities even more.”
