Manitou Lodge is a modern cottage retreat conceived for a family that loves to entertain, cook, and eat by Prototype Design Lab, located at Lake Manitou, Ontario, Canada. The brief was to plan for a lifestyle based around the kitchen — the centerpiece of the home.

Description of the project from the architects: They enjoy sharing their cooking passion and don’t want to be isolated from all the activity. For them, the kitchen is the communal area where experimentation and conversation about, and it’s for this reason that the kitchen became the center of our design focus. We knew that this space had to be functional, but incredible.

The kitchen starts out like a restaurant kitchen, with durable, stainless steel surfaces, but is designed to be warm and eclectic with a great mix of modern & vintage fixtures; pendant lamps, floating shelves and stunning blackened steel-framed chalkboard panels acting as cabinet doors.

Then there are some really warm elements such as a reclaimed barn wood wall and ceiling feature, marble counter tops, glass shelving and salvaged beam table. The palette of the space suggest vintage, contemporary and industrial all at the same time!
