NANO provided architectural, design, and custom furniture services for the Uptown New Orleans restaurant Dominique’s, known today as Apolline.
During the restoration process, special care was taken to ensure the newly introduced contemporary elements properly fused with the restaurant’s original aesthetic, creating a more enhanced expression of a classic design.

The separate bar and private and public dining spaces incorporated a “thickened wall condition”, while still maintaining a sense of cohesiveness within the space. This created well-defined framed entrances to the bar and dining spaces while allowing continuity throughout the restaurant.
The custom hidden cabinetry surrounding the bar was designed and built by NANO to increase the amount of available storage without detracting from the unique interior. On the exterior, the original cypress shutters and handcrafted architectural trim work were restored to their former glory.
