Our Studio

We are an architecture and design studio based in Prince Edward Island. For us, great design influences all aspects of life. It has the ability to shape behavior, encourage social interaction, and elevate the environments we inhabit.

This thinking resulted in Nine Yards – a team of individuals with an undying love for design – from architects to graphic designers, craftsmen and photographers.

Featured Project

Howe Bay House


Near the edge of a cliff on the East coast of Prince Edward Island sits Howe Bay House with its gaze fixed on the horizon. On approach, the site propels you into an overwhelming expanse of water and sky fused together by an endless horizon line. The quiet presence of the home invites refuge from the harsh North-East and provides a sense of grounding, balancing the site’s expansiveness.

Something experimental is cooking up at the Secret Design Bunker

Trivet

This simple household object protects your table by providing a place to set hot or cold objects—instead of using your go-to dish towel. Our trivet is milled from solid maple and is inspired by the parallel lines seen in the plowed rows of Island fields.
