This restaurant is situated on a pier extending over the waters of Coal Harbour, and offers outstanding views of Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains beyond. The building’s curved roof is derived from boat hulls and wave forms, and the cladding materials reference the neighbouring metal boat sheds. The interior space fully embraces the site and opens itself to the wonderful views, with features such as folding glass walls and a rooftop terrace. This project presented the opportunity to design a building that is very expressive, using a variety of high-quality materials and finishes. Distinctive features include metal shingles in the shape of fish scales, and teak and glass detailing.
