Text description provided by the architects. This project is the interior design for a bakery shop in Kyoto, Japan. The bakery shop is located on the first floor of the building, which has a unique character after surrounding buildings were rebuilt.
First of all, we tried to regain original expression by replacing reformed aluminum sashes with wooden sashes. Next, in the inside, we developed the antique showcase, a glass case with wooden framing placed on top of a large roughly cut log weighing 500kg. We also designed a long counter made of aluminum, 10mm thick, which provides a space for the break to be displayed freely.
