Exploring Variations of Space: BAKERY in Porto by Paulo Merlini Architecture

Before designing this project in Portugal, the architects at Paulo Merlini visited and analyzed other similar spaces searching for some errors which may be corrected: “We discovered that a basic error being committed was that the majority of those services only had one form of space. This design attitude ignored the difference of mood one fells in the course of the day, or perhaps if he walks there alone or with friends, needs a spot to read a book or simply desires to socialize. So, to bridge this flaw, we created three different environments. This way he costumer can select the space that fits better to his or her mood, rather than have to adapt itself to an imposing environment.

The presence of color and forms that are food alike actually makes people hungrier. In an effort to get that input at the users, we picked the twenty most wanted products of the bakery and in keeping with a pattern of world identification we found a center tone and applied it at the walls. At the formal approach, we made the ceiling melt in some points to make it seem like a cake topping”. [Information provided via e-mail by Paulo Merlini, Photo credits:
