In 1904, the Parisian Laundry Building was used for servicing restaurant linens. In 2021, it now host our Restaurant, which is a hospitality experience whose sinuous lighting and magnetic aura attracts patrons from the street. Designed by Toronto-based architecture studio PARTISANS, in collaboration with owners and restaurant industry luminaries Amanda Bradley and Robin Goodfellow, the restaurant pays homage to a bygone era of grand hotel lobbies and gilded bars. The Classical detailing of the early 20th-century warehouse façade is juxtaposed against an organic interior that invites patrons to sit at the helm of Toronto’s contemporary dining culture. The 6,000-square-foot venue is divided to allocate 4,000-square-feet for indoor use and 2,000 for a covered patio. Visitors courted by the glowing steps within the entrance are pulled into the lobby and up a cavernous-like passage that serves as the grand stair. A sculptural ceiling serves delectable views from beyond the threshold. Patrons may indulge in the full experience or enjoy each moment a la carte by traversing the celestial lightscape. The lighting installation originates above the stairs meandering around the reception, then passes the champagne bar and lounge area, before making its way along the chef’s counter to its terminus in a proscenium. It then cascades down a wall in the main dining room adjacent to a bank of intimate booth seating. Inside combines dual inspirations: a flexible reimagining of 1930s and ’40s supper clubs and a starry night sky. Meanwhile, the concrete bar, kitchen, and dining counters were cast to resemble rock-eroded landforms, with leather and metal details accenting the raw materials. The novel lighting system is integral to the cultural programming and elastic performance of the space. Created with LED Linear, the organically shaped armature houses a tremendous amount of acoustic management, HVAC, and mechanical systems to support an open kitchen and dining space. Nuanced material choices such as leather for the curved bar and scalloped banquettes also help reduce noise pollution while exposed brick, heavy timber, and metal accents nod to a palette steeped in industrial tradition.
