Transformation of a Former Red Brick Warehouse into a Seafood Restaurant Dominated by Wood

A former red brick warehouse building located in West Queen West, Toronto, Canada, has long been left vacant and untreated. Feeling "regretful" about this, Omar Gandhi (OGA) decided to renovate it and build a Seafood restaurant, as the City of Toronto is adjacent to the beach.

This is the Prime Seafood Palace, which occupies the building of the former red brick warehouse. Renovated by Omar Gandhi (OGA) designed the Prime Seafood Palace inspired by the shape of the cathedral which is dominated by wood in the interior. It is increasingly attractive because it has a white façade with black trim that can provide a wooden interior opportunity to appear with a visual full of aesthetics.

Upon entering the Prime Seafood Palace, visitors will be greeted by a wood that stretches along the restaurant. In addition, visitors seem to be invited to "free themselves" through an airy interior space with high ceilings that are curved, creating perfect circulation in the restaurant. The canopy installed to cover the skylights on the ceiling creates an artistic impression as sunlight enters through the gaps from the maple wood. The application of wooden floors also adds to the harmony of the interior of the Prime Seafood Palace restaurant.
