Think Big! What does your space say about you?

Inspiring Design

March 30, 2015

Architectural Record Magazine featured a very innovative design for a new restaurant in
Belgium that caught our eye! The restaurant, The Jane is located in a former 19th century
church. A Dutch design team transformed the whole space into an upscale dining facility.

This remarkable chandelier celebrates the room’s height and width encompassing the dining
area underneath. It is the perfect centerpiece for the room.

As you can see many aspects of the original church were preserved and incorporated into
this restaurant. We only wish the restaurant was here in Wilmington so we would be able to
dine in all of it’s design glory.
