Electric Owl


CLIENT: Electric Owl

Completed: 2011

Floor area: 10,000 sf

Occupant load: 300

Electric owl is a small live venue showcasing local and independent acts. The facility is spread out over two levels: the upper level houses three bars, a stage and dance floor, lounge and restaurant space, and a retail liquor store. The lower level provides the back of house services: coat check, washrooms, kitchen and ping pong room. The aesthetic is post industrial, with reclaimed wood, steel mesh, concrete and brick making up the minimal material palette. Vitra Hal chairs lend a modern comfort in the seating areas. The back of the space is anchored by a mixed medium installation offering an homage to anime. The sharp black and white graphics are overlayed with punches of vibrant neon, electrifying the owl flying into the room.
