Designers Helped A Bakery Fit Into This Small Retail Space

Architecture firm Studio MG2 has designed ‘Prestinaria Petit’, a micro-bakery with a takeout counter, that focuses on assorted types of bread and croissants.

Located in Curitiba, Brazil, the small space measures in at just 107 square feet (10m2), and shares a basement with other nearby commercial establishments.

The space was designed to enhance the customer experience for bakery products and ensure easier procedures for the employees. The simple facade features a wall of ‘White Parana’ marble that meets a marquee made from ‘Freijo’ wood. The marquee also allows the bakery name to be displayed.

Greeting customers is a small counter with views of the interior, while against the wall is a display case with a glass front and slanted shelves. A warm glow from hidden lighting on the wall highlights the use of wood that covers the upper section of the wall.
