The kitchen and selling space are considered to have equal weight, and a large table-like platform is created between them. This table can be used for a variety of purposes such as a display space, a checkout counter, or a working space to cut bread and knead dough.
Structural plywood was used for the top of the table, and translucent polycarbonate corrugated sheets are placed on the sides of the platform. By designing the sides as translucent, it is intended to emphasize the presence of the table while blurring boundaries.
For this shop with a small-sized staff, this design enables the owner to always have knowledge of the shop situation and allows different actions depending on the amount of bread produced. As a result, this table creates an open atmosphere, fosters communication between the customers and bakers, dynamically displays the process from the time the bread is baked to the moment it is sold, and creates a rich retail space that is fun for working as well as shopping.
