KMAI’s George Brown College Culinary Lab was featured in the June edition of the REMI Network magazine: Canadian Facility Maintenance and Design.
A Culinary Paradise
Canadian Facility Maintenance and Design Magazine, June 2019.
“As a world-class facility that welcomes and educates both students and visitors in wine and culinary innovation, 215 King St. East required high-end finishes that showcase the building’s heritage. Douglas fir lumber on the bar walls and counters complement the original wood deck and exterior brick masonry. Their joinery is clean, with minimal seams, and was stained to tie into the existing building. Large format, two-feet by four-feet porcelain floor tiles create a polished look on multiple levels. Skyfold vertically folding operable walls were installed to separate classes. Hidden in the ceiling, they appear to float in the space when not in use. Wave LED lights on the second floor were custom designed to minimize joints and provide a seamless and continuous flow across the ceiling. Elsewhere, clean glass light fixtures with industrial-style bulbs sparkle like the beverages served. The millwork, whether clean and white or warm wood, creates a simple backdrop to the colours, textures and plethora of food on order.”
