Bake Bar is an organic bakery that prides itself on being an accessible, local providore with locations throughout Sydney’s Eastern suburbs. Inspired by traditional Mediterranean and European recipes, the brands latest store sees them occupy a new development in the heart of Rose Bay. The brief required us to elevate the existing aesthetic by introducing a more
exclusive palette whilst not losing site of the brands local, community focused values.

The design direction took visual cues from the traditional process of bread making and reinterpreted them to create subtle reference points throughout the space. The core brand colour is realised in a black batten feature wall that encloses the kitchen pass that references the slatted racks that oven hot bread is cooled on. Black stained timber chairs compliment this feature throughout and the space is grounded with a large scale terrazzo tile that wraps up onto the rear counter wall.
