Prime Seafood Palace was imagined as a light-filled wood cathedral, lining an otherwise inconspicuous existing brick-clad building in Toronto. The principal goal was to create a timeless space, with local, natural materials that develop a patina and continue to enrich the restaurant over time. Designing with wood and light was the starting point for the design. The neutral material palette creates a backdrop for the main act - the unpretentious but exceptional food of cherished Canadian chef Matty Matheson.
