Pan & Pasteles, located in the heart of the historic city of Alcalá de Henares, Madrid, is a colourful and contemporary bakery. Local firm Ideo Arquitectura has renovated a 150-year-old plot beautifully. The aged characteristics of the original site are maintained and enhanced with an artistic installation that spreads across the ceiling, suspended above customers as they shop and eat. Comprising more than 12,000 pink-painted wooden sticks, the display simulates an indoor coral reef and complements the surrounding brick walls while adding a playful yet polished personality to the overall space.
In addition, tha architect and designer, Virginia del Barco, has designed the lighting, a part of the furniture, like the chairs, the stools, the shelves, the bartop, the whiteboards, the light boxes in the façades, etc. On the pictures, you can appreciate the different details of the claddings, as well as the high quality microcement pavements which gives the space a refined elegance.
