A portion of Madison, Wisconsin’s historic train complex has been reborn as the Harvey House, a new restaurant fashioned in homage to the state’s storied supper club culture. Brooklyn, New York-based design firm Home Studios spearheaded the interior design, which accentuates the building’s Old World character and blends it with a midcentury architectural flair.

“The Harvey House provides Madison with a community gathering space that exudes a sense of warm and relaxed comfort,” says Home Studios founder and creative director Oliver Haslegrave. “An homage to Wisconsin supper club scene of the midcentury, the restaurant feels personal and acutely connected to a sense of place and time, both seasonally and geographically.”

Spread across 5,000 square feet in an old baggage handler’s building, the Harvey House evokes a pervasive sense of warmth with dark wood, low lighting, and soft tactile upholstery. The site’s original palette was maintained through creamy brick tones, dark green window trim, and wooden sliding doors, while custom artwork by local artist Jessica Niello-White depicting Wisconsin’s bucolic scenery adorns the arches of the eatery’s two bars.

An expansive open kitchen acts as the main focal point of the first level, where light fixtures inspired by Parisian metro stations offset rough textures of plank floors and patinaed metal. Numerous dining rooms are housed across the F&B concept, including a glass-enclosed dining room situated on the former train platform that features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the private dining room housed within a retired 1960s train car.
