I’m not sure if I actually love this bakery or giving into my Carb cravings! I actually think its both. The combination of wood and crisp clean Carrara marble finish is just amazing. It opens the entire space yet allows the cozy feel of a bakery. Stylish Tom Dixon lights and the industrial Tolix chairs add a hip element to this 35 square meter space located on a very strategic corner in Edessa Greece.
Studioprototype worked on this pilot project for the bakery chain.The floor plan is narrow and linear, the designers suggested having the long marble food counter as the focal point of the entire space.
A sense of craftsmanship is imbued with the exterior of the shop being entirely clad in cedar like a well tailored suit. Punctuating the cedar cladding on the long facade, a black powder coated steel window box projects outwards beyond the ‘crust’ of the shop to serve as a seating area and bar for customers inside and outside the shop.
