Now known as Apolline, NANO worked on the restaurant when it was called Dominique’s. A great deal of care was taken in restoring elements original to this building while introducing contemporary elements within the building. The exterior of the building was returned to its original condition which necessitated the repair of the exterior cypress shutters and the hand tooled architectural trim work. The integration of existing antique architectural elements in the individual public spaces, juxtaposed with the creation of a “thickened wall condition” create framed access points to the bar and private dining areas. The thickened wall condition allows for a more defined entrance into the two smaller spaces, while creating a balanced envelope of modernity. Hidden cabinetry surrounding the bar was custom designed and built by NANO.
