Haisai - Eccentric & Unique Commercial Business with Living Space
In an unexpected, rural location sits an eccentric gem of an establishment. With rustic barn exteriors being a common sight in the small town of Singhampton, Haisai may be easily overlooked at first glance – but this is surely not a location to be missed.
Designed by Michael Stadtlander, who is not only one of Canada’s leading chefs but a passionate restaurateur, environmental activist, and artist, it is clear that this location is not only a restaurant but a work of art in itself. Upon entry you will immediately find an environment that is both alien and quaint – nothing about this setting can be called traditional, providing a truly one of a kind experience that can not elsewhere be replicated. A natural, warm feeling is maintained with the combination of wood, stone, and earthy elements throughout including shells and crustaceans, antlers and more.
Find walls creatively tiled with wood slabs, molded together with ceramic, with intricate hand placed colored glass pieces. The entire venue is a visual delight, with a constant unpredictable mosaic of details. The whimsy of the décor is consistent throughout the kitchen, washrooms, and rear office space.
The restaurants' layout includes a small entry space with two washrooms. To the right, a quaint bakery and shop space with eclectic walls – the lower half made of wood, the upper half a montage of varying china plates set into a mold. To the left of the entry, space is where the kitchen and dining area meet. Guests are offered a little glimpse into the kitchen action adding to the experience. The dining space seats 28 guests and features a bar, grand fireplace with a stone mantel that improves the atmosphere, and is complete with all custom made, totally unique pieces of wooden furniture.
In the warmer months, an exterior dining space that retains the same rustic charm seats another 12 guests. Exterior buildings include a large shed and an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven.
On the upper level, this building includes an apartment with a separate entrance, 2 bright bedrooms, open concept kitchen, dining and living space, a 3-piece bathroom with a walk-in shower, a laundry room, and generous storage space. This level also includes an additional bathroom, previously used for restaurant staff, and a wine cellar with vaulted ceilings and ample cabinetry.
This outlandish location allows for the opportunity to run a business that will create an unforgettable, magical experience for guests.
