Oh. My. God.  I nearly lost my coffee on this one.  Was taking a sip as I read the question.  I am sure I cannot say what my first thought was.  

Given that this is Sunday ...I'm cleansing my mind and going with ... a room or space in a church. 

Forgive me Father for I have sinned. (LOL)

Since Nikon is a camera line I will say it has to do with a focal point.

Where ever you are, that's where I'll be!

I know from my Greek background that this is an area off of the altar in Eastern Orthodox churches where vestments may be kept and where some preparations for the liturgy take place.  Beyond that, I don't know if it has any other connection to architecture, unless it means an anteroom where coats are stored.

Lots of clever answers, and absolutely creative.  One could used a Nikon to photograph it. 

It relates to The Eastern Orthodox Church which was the church I grew up with.  It is avasical a place or room to keep books, priets vestments, etc.  Never thought my courses in Old Church Slavonic would come in handy, LOL
