The Overbudget Offices, Canada
Overbudget Inc. is the parent company of popular Toronto-based restaurants Bar Isabel, Bar Raval, El Rey, Prettyugly, Harry’s Char Broil, and Quetzal owned by one of Canada’s best-known chefs and restaurateurs, Grant Van Gameren. The Overbudget Offices was a complete rebuild renovation combining modern Japanese and Scandinavian design influences. Grant van Gameren worked closely with Studio Junction Architect and Design Studio to design the space to be a creative platform and a central hub for partners and employees under the Overbudget Inc. umbrella. Ultra-compact Dekton and Silestone quartz surfaces play a significant role in the design and were utilized throughout as countertops, backsplashes and, wall cladding, allowing van Gameren and his team to work in a worry-free environment resistant to stains, heat and scratches.
