Classic Styling for a French-inspired Chef's Restaurant.
When Chef Michael Novak of Black Pig was moving his restaurant into the historic space on Ohio City's Bridge Avenue, he looked to us to guide key design decisions.
We knew right away the most impactful thing we could do would simply be to re-reveal the historic bones of the space after a 90's "update" detracted from the natural virtues of the space.
The space had red brick walls and reddish-toned wood everywhere. We painted every inch of trim work in black and updated the non-brick walls with cool-toned neutral paint colors to create more balance. Striped floor carpet tiles hid the areas without the original hardwood and custom canvas drapery provided texture and sound absorption. We added Schoolhouse Electric's lighting throughout to provide the sophisticated cool finishing touch a restaurant such as this deserved.
