An infill building of questionable provenance gets structurally strengthened and a makeover as a new wine bar and Parisian cafe.  A carriage house gets reused as a new kitchen, while the front room is leveled and opens to the sidewalk.  The glow of antiqued paint, accent lighting, and smoked mirrors transforms this corner of the Triangle in the Marina.
