Cupcake bakery's sweet design

April 01, 2009 |



         

     

When planning the MORE cupcake boutique in Chicago's Gold Coast, designers at David Woodhouse Architects LLC had only 550 sf in which to add the necessary ingredients to the specialty bakery: a full kitchen, display and sales space, and customer space. The solution: make customers feel as if they are walking into a giant display case surrounded by sweet and savory confections. Custom glass and stainless steel shelves form a wall of cupcakes, dark bamboo countertops hint at chunks of chocolate, and translucent, cream-colored eco-resin wall panels are suggestive of butter cream batter. Eco-panels are backlit with curved neon lighting to create "swirls" in the batter.
