This project required us to appease the city of Edmonton’s Heritage Board and Telus’ branding requirements. The result is a retro looking sign that works well with the outdoor Neon Museum that’s on the side of this building
Sai Woo Restaurant opened in 2015 and was named after the original restaurant that opened as a chop suey house in 1925 and closed in 1959. After seeing a youtube clip of the original sign from a 1958 chinatown parade, the owner wanted to bring the sign back to life.
From a 2 second clip of the sign, TDH took a screenshot and studied the layout, style and techniques used on the sign and started to work on the re-creation. Installed on July 28th the sign is a excellent replication of the original and brings a piece of history back into the area.

Working closely with the design team at Kasian Architecture, we were able to fabricate these beautiful site signs. Incorporating custom aluminum perforated screens, RGB LED lighting components, plastic panels and various other materials allows for a visually impactful sign.
These custom neon border tubes provided visual interest and helped frame the stage. The neon is mounted to black aluminum composite panels with a hidden frame, helping it blend in with the backdrop while providing structural support.
Custom neon chandelier designed by Andrea Greenway, inspired by artist Mathieu Lehanneur light Les Cordes . This neon is secured to a hidden box that houses all the electrical components and discretely sets it in the ceiling.
