New Jersey-based firm JZA+D has transformed a defunct automobile service station into a modern restaurant

Sitting opposite a shopping centre in Princeton, New Jersey, Nomad Pizza looks like the kind of place that you would find in Los Angeles or Miami. Sleek glass and cedar planes sit next to a patio area that sparkles at night, and its hard to believe that the restaurant was once an old automobile service station.

The new restaurant

To create an inviting F&B destination, Zinder and his team closed off the drive-through bays and portals at the rear with a facade of cedar and storefront glazing, and installed specialised doors on the front to take advantage of the original garage openings. This resulted in the ability to extend the dining area into an awning-covered patio area during warmer months.

Before the renovation

“Unlike typical gas stations, this structure was a rather elegant example of 1930′s modernism,” says Joshua Zinder, founder of JZA+D. “We were thrilled to help preserve and reuse the building.”
