Description

STUDIO 531 renovated the The Lakes located at Elk Lake Drive in Saanich, B.C. The design is inspired by the rich rowing history of the nearby Elk Lake (home to the Canadian National Rowing team), and the natural landscape.  Inside a a large central, curvilinear wooden bar defines the space. Walls are wrapped with wood slats to recall the wooden boat sheds on the lake. A historic wooden rowing scull used on Elk Lake is suspended overhead. Dark green dining booths, matte black metal, geometric tile and wooden accents are used to create several different dining zones and atmospheres.
