To overcome the challenges of the crowded market, restaurants are required to go beyond their traditional culinary vocation.


A sensual experience should complement the serving of food and taken from that perspective, the design plays a major role. The success of the restaurant calls for an originality in a concept and its appeal to the customer.

Canadian Pop artist Charles Pachter, made famous by his imagery of Canadian moose, decided to live, work, and sell his art in one location, on the site of his Toronto studio, a narrow 6 x 30 metre infill, in a Victorian residential neighbourhood, of Toronto’s Chinatown.

Moose Factory, the original studio, a lane shed at the rear of the site, was left in tact. For Pachter Hall, the contemporary addition, Teeple Architects designed a set of three transparent, horizontal, stacked and stepped extruded tubes, shifted for maximum light penetration; programmed as the ground floor studio, second storey gallery and Pachter’s loft, on top.

Sorg Architects - U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados Print E-mail
Wednesday, 05 November 2008 02:35

Sunshade_Detail.jpg The new U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown opened earlier this year as part of a larger New Embassy Compound designed by Sorg Architects for the U.S. Department of State.  The new Embassy consists of a renovated existing five-story office building along with a new addition of similar scale, and is located on a dramatic site in Wildey, St. Michael, outside Barbados’ capital city, Bridgetown.


In response to the challenging site and Department of State security requirements the design concept combines prevalent vernacular architectural styles with local materials and modernist forms to create architecture that both reflects  important elements of its local context and serves as a symbol of U.S. democratic ideals.  The new Embassy’s hinged form connects public and private functions with a smaller centerpiece and creates a welcoming and graceful American diplomatic presence on the island.
