The Ritchie Market building is a community hub in one of Edmonton's mature neighbourhoods. Conceived as an homage to the neighbourhood's industrial past, it houses four diverse local businesses: a craft brewery and restaurant, a coffee roastery, and café, a butcher, and a bike rental shop.
The limited space enforce tight parameters on the building's functional relationships.
A pedestrian lane has been developed on the east side of the building to provide connection through the site, access to bike rentals and amenity set back from the adjacent residence. The west side has a generous plaza divided equally between a seasonal patio and bicycle parking.
The interior continues the industrial aesthetic with exposed steel structure, building systems and solid floor and roof deck.
