The Commodore Restaurant design, Toronto (Parkdale)

 

Bright, distinct, sea-worthy.

Our mandate was to conceive and execute a design for a seafood restaurant that met the client's desire to evoke a coastal experience without any maritime kitsch. Boat hulls morph into arches; natural texture and maritime white keep the space airy and make it wider visually than its narrow form actually is. Fluid curves inspired by ocean waves balance linear banquet tables.

Above the bar, portal lights salvaged from Toronto’s historic Captain John’s restaurant are arranged in the form of abstract tentacles.

The same spatial economies at work in ship’s architecture are present here, allowing this dining room to function as well for servers and bartenders as it does for guests.

Gentle curves appear again, this time as counter tops for additional seating in the entrance area. Custom-fabricated vestibule walls act as a weather break with stained glass panels that add splashes of colour and offer privacy to those sitting across from one another.
