Heirloom Ambleside: A Modern, Casual Restaurant Reflecting The Mountainside And Coastal Setting

Heirloom Ambleside is a modern fast casual restaurant located close to the beach in Vancouver, Canada. Its interior was designed by Evoke International Design Inc and reflects the mountainside and coastal setting. The main idea of this project was to create an interior that is flexible and would accommodate a dawn-till-late casual dining concept. The casual dining concept also comes with a juice bar, café, and a full-sized kitchen. Thanks to the restaurant’s corner location, the designing team was able to make the most of the tall street front windows. They realized the idea by adding bar seating along them, offering diners with views of the street as they enjoy their foods and drinks.
