Our Story and Art

Our Art Story

The 8,400-square-foot property with an impressive industrial-chic design. “Sensitive,” “authentic,” and “inspiring emotion” were all terms given as design directives to transform the former old-school Italian restaurant. To achieve the charges, we incorporated exposed brick, concrete, and aged metals into the project. The warm colors of the raw materials provide a sense of belonging.

The feeling of fellowship is reinforced at the U.B. Klem community tables surrounded by Crate and Barrel chairs. Customers looking for a more intimate dining experience, meanwhile, can enjoy the restaurant’s contemporary cuisine at private tables, including those along the sensuous Kravet purple velvet and navy leather-upholstered banquette, built by local fabricator Eagle Chair Company.

The theme of rebirth also plays an important role in the space’s transformation. To the end, we created an angelic motif with such aspects as lighting from Lighting Inc. in the dropped ceiling that mimics a starry night sky, as well as custom ironworks by the architect representing trees and clouds.

Perhaps the most literal reference to angels, however, can be found on the wall featuring five Houstonian women watching over patrons. Created by local street artist Sebastien “Mr. D. 1987” Boileau, these brightly colored murals symbolize the diversity and strength in Houstonian females. For the subjects, Boileau turned to inspiring women he already knew, ranging from a cancer survivor to an art teacher.
