Baker’s Dozen: 13 More Sweet Projects Filled with Delight

Bakeries are timeless. While industrialization and commercialization have transformed the art of baking and baked goods, bakeries remain important community spaces for gathering and defining neighborhood identity. These iconic spaces are still defined by a common programmatic understanding that combines areas to gather, socialize, shop, and work. Found across cultures, they are diverse as they are functional and expressive.

Following our first article on bakeries, this second feature draws an even greater picture. Once again inspired by the term “baker’s dozen”, the projects explore the relationships between space and craft. The term originated from practice of baking 13 items for an intended dozen, thus insuring bakers wouldn’t be fined for selling goods lower than a statutory weight. Located in cities around the world, the designs share similar ideas on display, light and interior design. Showcasing different approaches to space, form and tectonics, together they paint a picture of sweet delight.

The Steel Moment shop draws the landscape from the facade's vine and the garden of the yard into the interior, separating the space with various movements, and allowing you to have special experiences from the inside. The team started to create a design concept directly from the idea of how to overcome the high floor height and level differences of the original building. In order to effectively solve the level difference, different levels of floors were created at the center of the space.

They built MOSP: a place that reflects each individual’s form of relaxation. Openings between these walls act as a vent, making the place a space of relationship without boundaries. “MOSP”, located in Daejeon city, is under the foot of a mountain.
