Download Case Study
The brief was to provide a traditional, yet modern style shop counter to display hold and serve the bakeries products. The counter needed to be flexible to hold a whole range of bakery goods including cakes and patisseries, pastry bakes and chocolates. The counter was also to feature a coffee counter and have the ability to serve hot food as well. Overall, the counter had to be all encompassing to incorporate the varied menu of hot food, salads, bakery products, cold drinks and house the coffee machine.
The bakery was also to house a first floor prep kitchen which would be used to service some of the requirements for the counter downstairs. Vision were to provide bakery tables, a dough roller, refrigeration and dishwashing. Vision were to utilise a selection of existing equipment, which had to be factored into the design and the installation. The client had 2 large existing marble countertops which they wanted to reuse in the new scheme, Vision therefore fabricated new base units with bakery tray runners to house the existing tops.
The existing shop for the project was based within a long thin building. The client wanted to strip everything back and refurbish the whole building - the walls were stripped back to their original brick, they opened up the fireplaces, stripped all the flooring and re-floored throughout. The finished bakery features a rustic aesthetic with a traditional, yet modern, versatile counter.
Vision had a mock up of the frontage of the counter pannelling made up, so that the client could be confident in their decision for the colour and finish. This was accompanied by 3D designs to really encapsulate how the finished project would look. The finished counter is very aesthetically pleasing and perfectly showcases the delicacies that the bakery produces. Since opening the bakery has been extremely busy.
"Vision Commercial Kitchens have been invaluable in helping us create the bakery we envisaged. They have offered helpful advice throughout the project, ensuring that the counter created would work for our exact needs. Their friendly attitude and attention to detail throughout left us feeling confident that they would achieve what we were looking for, even with the uncertainties faced with the project being carried out during the covid period. The finish project looks amazing and provides us with everything we need to truly showcase our artisan bakery products to our customers."
