Preserving history using modern techniques at Loggers Grill

Black gooseneck lighting was flush mounted to the wood tresses, which created a warm wash of light falling in varying gradients over the rustic sign elements.

Lighting up the sign

The external illumination for the sign was the final connection to bygone eras. Black gooseneck lighting was flush mounted to the wood tresses, which created a warm wash of light falling in varying gradients over the rustic sign elements. These lights were stationed 1524 mm (60 in.) apart at the peak of each mountain to properly illuminate the sign.

Adding new life to a landmark

The client mentioned to the team the park’s patrons, after seeing the new sign, asked if the entire structure had been replaced. This confirmed the team’s hard work had paid off and they had successfully managed to change the overall look of Loggers Grill while retaining its essence.

The combination of various elements allowed the shop to produce a sign that is one part history, and one part an example of what artistic fabricators can accomplish with modern techniques and skill. The goal when pursuing the project was to refurbish and add new life to a restaurant that is considered a landmark in Vancouver, and the TDH team is proud to have been able to add to its history.
