From the architect. Rigolo was designed to be a neighborhood cafe/bakery, combining a French-inspired menu with an inviting and warm dining space. The project involved remodeling an existing retail space of an existing 1950's building.

The primary elements of our design include removing the low-lying drop ceiling to reveal the existing roof structure, which gives the space a lofty feel, inserting a slit skylight into the roof, allowing natural light to flood into the center of the space. Terry & Terry Architecture also designed a wood ribbon wall on the west side of the interior to connect the front and back entrances; the wall also functions as built-in seating for the dining tables.
