Spend a Day at Homestead

Something that’s really important to me is including community members in every step of our project-building process. As part of the communities we are revitalizing, your happiness is every bit as essential to our creations as the foundation it lays on. With that in mind, I’ve been thinking about the best way I could include community members into the work we do here at RedBrick. Then, it hit me. We’ve been designing your homes with projects such as the 11212 Apartments and Riverdale Narrow Lots, now I think it’s time we welcomed you into ours.

Homestead is a collaborative workspace in the heart of downtown Edmonton, and the home of RedBrick. Essentially, we share our home with other working professionals who have similar visions in different areas of expertise. Think of it as sharing one big apartment; we’re all under the same roof with a collaborative common area, but with individual working spaces. Together, we have created a community of city-builders, small businesses, creatives, freelancers, entrepreneurs, start-ups, doers and thinkers in the trendy and modern workspace known as Homestead.

So, what’s a day like at our house? In a lot of ways, it’s just like yours. Most of the time we are crazy busy. Between meetings, running in and out to project sites and managing day to day office responsibilities, things can get pretty hectic around here. Thankfully, we have an amazing RedBrick and Homestead family that does his/her own part in making sure everything runs smoothly. While it isn’t often that we have a lot of down time around here (something I’m sure we can all relate to) there are brief moments where we can sit down, chat and laugh with the rest of the Homestead family, and those are some of our most cherished moments. For you, these moments may be at Sunday family dinners. For us it’s a quick lunch on a Wednesday, but regardless it’s always a breath of fresh air to just enjoy the company of family.

We also love the company of friends! Some of the most memorable days at Homestead are when we get to open our front doors and welcome our friends in for the day. This can be anything from office tours, pop-up shops, or just neighbours coming in to say hi. The entire Homestead community is proud of our home, and it’s always rewarding to welcome others in to see one of RedBrick’s creations.

We’re always willing to open up our doors to friends. If you’d like to see more of what it’s like to work and collaborate here at Homestead, keep up with us on RedBrick’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, and Homestead’s Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.  We’d love to hear a few fun stories about what a day is like in your home, as well, so as always please feel free to comment and share with us.

That’s all for now, chat again soon.

All the best,

-tmd.
