It was moving time for Beckta, one of Ottawa's finer dining establishments. With a reputation of fantastic service and succulent food, the move from being tucked away in the downtown core to a newly-renovated and restored historic building on Elgin street meant a huge increase in visibility.
The only request from Stephen Beckta was to have the brand have some sort of link to the building's history. Taking that note to heart, I dug down and did as much research on the building as I could. The architectural features of the building were understated but elegant. One thing that stood out, however were the use of an art deco representation of a swan. "This is it", I thought. And it was. Beckta LOVED it. It was elegant, clean, modern, and also paid homage to the roots of the establishment. Mission accomplished. Bon Appetit.
