This new 6850 square foot sales and service centre for Winnipeg Sport and Leisure is nestled carefully into the Canadian Shield in Kenora, Ontario above Cameron Bay on Lake of the Woods.  The site selection and orientation is based on a balance between providing customers with appropriate visual access to sales pavilion while providing the service department with convenient access to the boat launch and customer boat compound.   Care was taken to protect as much of the natural site as possible to retain the tall pine trees and natural outcropping of bedrock.  
The service building contains four drive-through work bays with an gantry crane for lifting boat motor accessible at two work bays.  The sales floor has glazing on two sides that open to the 100 year old pine growth creating an effect of being in the woods.   The dealership sells power sport vehicles and boats within a setting idea for creating an environment that speaks to the passion of the users of these products for sale.
