for the designers of the project —B.L.U.E architecture studio— the goal was for the interior to be pure and bright. this is addressed with the white walls, tiles, rolling pins, brass and planks of wood that has been chosen as the main materials. the surfaces of the walls have been divided into seven different zones; each clad in a different pattern of tiling. along with the accents of brass, an elegant interior with an inviting atmosphere is established, placing the baked goods as focus inside the brass-lined glass casings. 





the main decorative element to the bakery is the different length rolling pins which hang in white and wood from the ceiling. old planks of wood has been sourced to create the furniture inside withwheat bakery. the rustic addition adds texture to the otherwise smooth and pristine environment which is on full view to passersby and also a window into the kitchen.
