Buna's Kitchen, located at the bustling intersection of Richmond and Spadina, is a modern European dining café. Their quick-service model and distinct motif required a design that was functional and captured a European atmosphere despite the space’s small dimensions.
Maximizing a small amount of square footage takes a creative and thoughtful approach. The plan was to create custom banquette seating, an island, a raw concrete floor to showcase the service area and to implement a bulkhead solution to conceal the large mechanical units and exhaust systems. These elements optimized the space and created a logical flow for both the employees and the diners.
Buna’s kitchen now has an inviting space that effectively caters to individuals and groups who want to enjoy a meal.
