Spencer Court

Principal Architect & Founder




"Making architecture is a profound act of optimism that can galvanize our relationship to the spaces, communities and cities people dwell."

Spencer Court is Principal Architect and founder of 'One One Ten' - a modest design based studio practice in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. One One Ten was established in 2010 as a network of single professionals joining forces as a collective team in the context of a new paradigm of professional practice. Spencer continues to build upon responsive forms of architect-led building practices that are relevant to contemporary life and provide effective, tailored outcomes for clients and their most demanding building issues.

Spencer is known by discerning clients as a leading architect recognized not only for his design ability, but overall leadership in project development, planning and emphasis on crucial pre-design work. He brings high attention to clients across a wide range of project typologies - especially in health, workplace, clinical, small business (tenant improvement) and larger post-secondary, recreation and bespoke high performance residential sectors. Spencer's astute nature for identifying key client motives and concerns during early stages allows him to devise effective design solutions for specific client challenges - in business and in life. His track record is evident in creating architectural value that effectively realizes exceptional built environments for people by guiding integrated, multidisciplinary teams to achieve unique stakeholder objectives. As such, Spencer is regularly able to surpass client expectations when the design effort is leveraged through informed client decisions that ultimate direct and form the framework for a particular work.
