The Rogue Kitchen & Wet Bar now occupies the former site of an electronics shop and a mattress retailer. This project is an adaptive reuse of a dated retail/ office building into a vibrant urban neighbourhood restaurant. Unlike many restaurant clients who seek unique or unusual environments to attract customers, this client did the opposite: they took a nondescript building in a great location, and made it unique. The objective was to re-contextualize by retrofitting the interior to an open, extroverted plan, and by adding to and re-cladding the building to offer street branding as architecture. The building was seismically updated, while energy-efficient systems were added. An outdoor patio extends the seating to the street corner, effectively melding the outdoors with the indoors for much of the year. Photo Credits: ICD Photography
