Atelier Baulier designed the second shop for the Japanese fusion desserts brand Kova Patisserie in Chinatown. Playing with a strong contrast between the architectural shell and patisseries display unit, focus is brought onto the products.
The dark interiors feature charred wood, a dark clay render and natural marmoleum. The solid counter is cladded with a recycled glass material which has been routed with a bespoke pattern hinting at the famous millecrêpes cake Kova are famous for.
The minimalist palette, shapes and lighting are balanced by the use of naturally textured materials bringing depth to this small space. The bright shopfront provides a striking contrast with the interiors, bringing clarity and drawing the eye to the cake display.
