BIGALORA, Royal Oak
Bigalora is located in the former St. Clair Power plant on the southern edge of Royal Oak’s downtown. The building included the original coal mezzanine, soaring ceilings and generous windows. With such an amazing structure as the beginning, we determined that establishing a simple pallet of materials and elements to shape the space was the direction to follow.
We designed a clean open kitchen that highlights the imported wood burning oven and created an intimate bar that opens to an outside deck connecting to an intimate outdoor covered patio. These simple elements become the background for Chef Luciano Del Signore’s amazing food.
