KCA composes yakafu DIY bakery in china with geometric terrazzo blocks + graphic elements

shanghai-based studio KCA – kostas chatzigiannis architecture has completed yakafu’s flagship DIY bakery in anji, a picturesque town near hangzhou, china. bold, graphic, and brightly colored, the store invites adults and children who want to learn how to bake bread and pastries – or simply enjoy them – into its double-story interior, characterized by geometric terrazzo surfaces and metal details in different hues.

KCA has clad the exterior of the yakafu DIY bakery in a façade of terrazzo and back-lit blue, perforated metal surfaces, that make it to stand out from its surroundings. on the ground floor, visitors can enjoy bread and pastries, immersed in a bold interior of concrete floors, tiled walls, neon lights and metal details. terrazzo, the protagonist of the entire interior, can be found here in the form of seemingly scattered terrazzo blocks of various heights and sizes on the bar, service counters and display areas, as well as on the geometric staircase that connects the two levels.KCA composes yakafu DIY bakery in china with geometric terrazzo blocks + graphic elements

 

 

the upper floor of the store is dedicated to the DIY part of the bakery, where visitors can take workshops to learn how to bake bread and pastries on their own. a large, graphic mural extends from the ground level up to the ceiling, visually connecting the two floors, while perforated metal surfaces in different hues create a sense of openness while defining the space.
