This restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, whose menu features authentic southern French cuisine, was designed to convey the warmth and character native to the Mediterranean region. The design began with a linear formal response to a very narrow existing context and used materials characteristic of New York City’s urban core. The lines of reclaimed wood, recycled brick, rough-cut slate and poured-in-place concrete were calibrated to emphasize the dominant path of circulation. A variety of lighting schemes helped to delineate the three main zones of the restaurant, stressing simple elegance, movement, and intimacy.
