airhouse completes 'bakery tsukiakari' in japan with half-moon wooden counter

a half-moon wooden counter takes center stage in airhouse’s ‘bakery tsukiakari’ in ogaki city, japan. the project is developed for a client who inherited the ironworks run by his father, and decided to transform it into a bakery. the bakery’s logo combines the symbol of a factory and the form of a bread loaf, paying homage to the building’s past while celebrating its present. the resulting shape also defines the form of its windows and doorways.airhouse completes 'bakery tsukiakari' in japan with half-moon wooden counter all images by toshiyuki yano

 

 

the logo of ‘bakery tsukiakari’ takes its cues from the symbol of a factory and a bread loaf, which airhouse has repeated in the building’s windows and entrance. in this way, the logo can be seen on interior surfaces as natural light enters during daytime. at the same time, light is also emitted through the openings during nighttime, creating a distinct identity for the project.airhouse completes 'bakery tsukiakari' in japan with half-moon wooden counter 

 

 

inside, the bakery is divided into two zones: the preparation area, and the display/service area. as customers enter the shop, they encounter a large wooden counter shaped like a half moon, where bread and pastries are displayed. features white-hued walls and concrete flooring complete the light-filled, airy interior. airhouse completes 'bakery tsukiakari' in japan with half-moon wooden counter  half moon wooden counter airhouse has shaped the bakery's windows like the store's logo pastries on display on the counter airhouse bakery interior viewairhouse has divided the bakery in two sections
