Overview

NAK designed the Southwinds community, a 58 hectare development in South Airdrie, to celebrate the area’s agricultural roots while incorporating sustainable features throughout. The design of the community aims to achieve energy efficiency through housing orientation, efficient use of land through the development of a variety of housing products and densities, and low impact development through bioswales, retention ponds, and deeper topsoil. The expanding Windsong community continues to be designed to ensure enjoyment and functionality for generations to come.

NAK’s role has progressed from visioning, land use planning, and urban design, to detailed landscape design and tendering.
