Lift Bar & Grill

This restaurant is on a pier extending over the waters of Coal Harbour, offering outstanding views of Stanley Park and the North Shore mountains beyond.  The building’s curved roof concept is derived from boat hull and wave form imagery, and the “fish scale” cladding materials echo the neighbouring metal boat sheds.  The interior space fully embraces the site and opens itself to the spectacular views, with folding glass walls and a rooftop terrace and fireplace.  This project provided the opportunity to design a building that is very expressive, using a variety of high-quality materials and finishes.
