Shining a new light
on an old favorite.
When JtA was tasked with designing the renovation of Newton culinary giant Lumiere after a change of ownership, careful attention was required.
We needed to be extremely mindful of paying homage to the history and culture of the existing space — especially the devoted customer base — while re-energizing the restaurant for its next chapter. Thoughtful consideration was given to keeping iconic features such as the textile ceiling clouds, while new finishes and fixtures were selected to work with the existing character. From there, refinished flooring, new lighting, all-new upholstery, and a modern coat of paint set the table for a new, yet still familiar Lumiere experience.
