For a bakery interior, Maisquepan took the road less traveled and came away with an interior that combines modern lines and traditional warmth. Taking advantage of the open spaces outside the store and the floor-length windows to highlight the activity within, NAN Architects have created an inviting exterior that frames the interior business.
Steel surfaces and concealed lighting present a clean, functional bakery. Wood accenting, floors and colorful ceramic tiles add to the welcoming atmosphere. Color was a careful consideration, with blue tiling and yellow furnishings providing complimentary tones.
Intended to combine Portuguese and Brazilian cuisine, this bakery interior design had to account for customer rotation, employee movement and the projected average for sales, both in numbers and product itself. Open spaces allow for easy communication between staff.
By avoiding the traditional bakery interior, the interior designer gave the Maisquepan an original and intriguing look. The collection of displayed wines and the open bar counter viewed from the street entice pedestrians inside. Combining the business aspect and the customer service appeal with a clear view into work spaces opens the bakery’s interior.
Brand recognition is emphasized subtly by the lit signage with an eye-catching yellow acting as the initial draw to the eyes. A variation in seating location lets customers choose if they wish to focus on their work, their dining partner or the view provided by the street itself.
Display cases can be seen from the street, acting as further lure to potential customers. By using traditional elements, complimentary colors and industrial cleanliness, the interior designers have given the Maisquepan bakery a welcoming, modern feel with a striking look.
