A veteran of the central Illinois restaurant industry, the owner of Rob Dob's Restaurant & Bar approached EA Architecture & Design with a vision -- to develop an empty lot on Bloomington's east side into a fine-dining restaurant. Over the course of 2 years, the team at EA strategized, sketched and planned in close collaboration with Mr. Dobski to bring his dream to life. EA provided site development consulting, 3D visualization studies, structural design, architectural & interior design, lighting design, furniture procurement, artwork consultation, and construction administration.
The result is a place unlike any other in the region. Grand in scale yet cozy-feeling. Lively with color & texture, still intimate & comfortable. Unexpectedly, it feels like it's always been there.
