Farini Bakery & Café

Driving the brief for the project was the requirement that these premises in Milan be at once a gallery for bread, a stage for bakers and a gathering place for customers, with its various spaces simultaneously susceptible to the very different disciplines of curation and choreography.

The outcome is a series of refined backdrops for people and objects, with richness deriving from details of form, texture, pattern and the fall of the light. At the heart of the design is a recognisable language of materials and architectural moves — a signature curve, a particular play of recessed and protruding elements — that both feels responsive to the site, but can also adapt to future location conditions.
