A bakery in Montreal, Canada inspired by the European concept of ‘bakery/café’, has made some major renovations to give the chain a contemporary look with help from local architects Naturehumaine.
“The interior organization has been completely redesigned with an extension in the back creating a 1500 sq. ft unit.” says the architects.
“The spatial concept of the project was inspired by the lattice of wooden bread baskets. A structural wooden frame holds a series of randomized wood slats creating a lattice that opens and closes to create space for lighting and ventilation.”
“The lattice wraps down the wall turning into shelves for the bread and pastries as well as benches and counter tops. The randomized rhythmic lattice provides a dynamism experienced as you enter the bakery.”
