The proposal offers a multi dining experience that provides a social hub to connect a wide target audience. Primarily the space will provide a meeting point to connect the canal network and offer a place to relax, socialize and engage with the city of Chester, contrasting against the isolation of life living on a canal boat. The proposal will also target local residents, students and dog walkers through the Chester City conservation area in which the site is located.
Within the building various dining experiences will separate the space, as the ground floor will include an individual seating area overlooking the canal, a social area to gather with friends and a communal pit in which various people can mix and share their teppanyaki style cooking experience. Alternatively, the first floor will offer private dining facilities tailored for larger families and groups where the experience is solely led by themselves.
All these areas have different qualities, but they all share the same atmospheric conditions with the use of fire. The campfire is something that connects people of all ages and this is a primary focus of the proposal and by incorporating this feature people can relax and socialize all year round.
