GRANITE CLUB TRANSFORMATION
2350 Bayview Avenue
Responding to evolving societal trends and member expectations, Toronto’s Granite Club is transformed in increments, while remaining open and of high service to members.
In response to evolving trends and changing membership expectations, a long-term master plan updates the vision for Toronto’s largest and best-established sport and social club. Among other things, the full array of dining choices for club members is examined, leading to a comprehensive new concept for food service at the club.
The center of the ground-floor is restructured from north to south as an axial enfilade of rooms displaying, in museum format, the club’s art collection, and organizing a complex plan into an easy-to-navigate- and-enjoy experience.
Casual dining, the fastest-growing part of food service at the club, achieves prominence with a series of new interior rooms and service concepts along with a complete rethink of exterior dining.
MAINTAINING A COMPETITIVE EDGE
Above all else, these member-driven changes ensure the club’s ongoing ability to satisfy existing members and attract new.
