Elegant Elektra

Love the look of this bakery in Edessa, Greece. I spotted it on Coolboom and thought it so stylish I should share it with you. Designed by Studio Prototype and covering only thirty-five square metres it occupies a strategic corner site on the main pedestrian high street.  Here's how they describe the design thinking: Working with a narrow, linear floor plan a rigorous language was developed for the shop based on a long marble food counter acting as a monolithic focal point of the spatial arrangement. Light and luminosity flood the interior of the bakery to hero the food display. Carrara marble, wood and brass serve as the backdrop. The exterior of the shop is clad in cedar like a well tailored suit. Punctuating the cedar on the long facade, a black powder coated steel window box projects outwards beyond the ‘crust’ of the shop to serve as a seating area and bar for customers both inside and outside the shop. Nice prototype!
