Facility

The café for which we created interior design is located at Marata Street in the very heart of St. Petersburg.
Three young ladies who own the place have already worked together in catering. They decided to bring their dream to life and open a cozy café, serving delicious breakfasts and coffee at any time of the day.

A friend helped them with the brand style. The color palette comprised tenderly pink and olive, and the name – Babe’s bakery – was given with regular lettering.

Interior

Initially, this room had a large glass window, representing the connection of the interior with the city and the architectural environment. We used it to place a counter along the façade for visitors to enjoy the street view. Under the counter, three transparent semi bar chairs are hidden that don’t block view from the outside. The height of chairs wasn’t chosen by chance: baker’s shops are often attended by elderly people.

Deep window jambs are finished with white matte tiles and vividly pink grout. White surfaces reflect and enhance natural light and highlight the counter. The same tiling was used at the shop sign and the outside threshold.

The extended lounge was divided into two reasonable zones: a café zone with seats for visitors, and an ordering counter with a coffee machine, a fancy cakes display, and a tray for baked pastry.

Visually, the design was based on a fine combination of two background materials: marble and microcement. They have similar pattern, but different textures. The backgrounds were complemented with brass details and pieces made of welded square tubes. Tubes painted in the brand pink were used to make bracket-supported tables, room heater screens, bread baskets, and shelves for packing containers.
