CL Pizza Co.
Canadian Lakes, MI
Owners of The Woods Vacation Condos opened a restaurant and ice cream shop in a newly constructed building in Canadian Lakes. SKP Design services for this project include space planning, 3-D model drawings, and selection of materials, finishes, furniture, art and décor.
The concept for CL Pizza Co. is casual, family-friendly dining in an industrial rustic atmosphere. Vaulted ceilings and corrugated rustic metal accents highlight the color scheme of dark blue, hunter green, wood tones and mixed metals. Wood-look porcelain floor tile and cork-texture vinyl wallcovering bring warmth to the space. Dining tables from Moz have unique gradient color metal tops. A corrugated metal awning accents the pick-up window in the entrance hallway.
Indoor seating options include booths, large tables, low tops, high tops and a side dining room that can be reserved for special events. Two glass paneled garage doors add to the industrial vibe and can be closed to separate the private dining room. The bar offers both indoor and outdoor seating. A huge patio area provides seating with views of the water.
Bathrooms in the hall leading to the Dockside Ice Cream are shared by patrons of both establishments. The wet wall behind the sinks features tile installed in a herringbone pattern.
