Tacofino Restaurant Kitsilano

The 1,000 sq ft dining area has been stripped down to its concrete shell with the imperfections and textures being key elements that we wanted to keep and integrated into the overall concept of the new environment. Developed around a base of utilitarian and natural materials that make reference to the local environment and economy of the Westcoast, painted slatted cedar 2x4’s wrap around the banquette and water station as well as above the service counter. Exposed conduit and keyless lamp fixtures are laid out to lightly trace the shape of a wave barrelling over the room, giving a subtle nod to the owners' hometown and the restaurants roots in Tofino. References to water and natural forms appear in the wall menu, ovoid mirrors, custom beach stone tabletops and artwork.
