It is not only about making desserts when it comes to opening a pastry shop. A facade’s design can be the first visual image that represents the brand. With bulky and bold features of the white stone coating on the facade, the designer contrasts it with the black quartz ceramics and the slightly curved walls. Inside the shop, the Scandinavian wooden flooring and the white-grey tone are the foundation, while the pink neon sign on the right corner brightens up the whole space.
A classic combination of white marbling veins, metallic decoration items, and fashion grey elevates the spatial perception in a relatively narrow space here. A great-sized floor-to-ceiling window at the entrance introduces sunlight and streetscape, reflecting on the light-colored wooden materials and the pure whiteness of the space. The use of open shelving, tilted lattice, wall-mounted stairs, and transparent glass panels open up the whole space with a better fluidity.
The counter is designed to be slightly higher, where the fridge for dessert display is closer to one’s natural angle and perspective. The slightly tilted display allows customers to easily view and quickly choose the pastry.
Afterwards, one can sit in front of the window to enjoy the streetscape while enjoying the dessert. The small corner under the staircases provide a little privacy with the mirror at the back to expand the spatial perception.
Two paintings used on the wall add in some colors to the luminous whiteness in the space. Through glass and reflective materials, the pink neon lights reflect several times, eventually creating interesting overlapping. From different perspectives, they all echo each other to create a sweet yet not too intense atmosphere, offering the most adequate visual identity for the 18 Dix-Huit Patisserie.
