We liked this simple, elegant design. In fact the facade is resolutely rational and orthogonal. The humble, pale-coloured architectural design has a distinct Scandinavian feel to it.

Buns From Home, London Bakery

This was a careful balancing act Buns From Home is a small retail unit in Sloane Square. The volume needed to be efficiently organized without losing the homely intimacy of the bakery’s story and values. Located in a conservation area, it also had to be sensible about its architectural language.

Playing with traditional joinery profiles organized around a central counter, Architects Studio XM designed a quasi-residential storefront which bridges the visual gap between the 1960s building in which it is located and the surrounding architecture.

The various window opening systems that animate the façade promote interactions between pedestrians and the business. The large sash window above the counter allows people to browse and order while the stable door pivots open to welcome deliveries and process payments. Above them, a top-hung window facilitates natural ventilation in the unit.

The counter was designed with the same playful efficiency. Used for display and baking inside the unit, it also extends beyond, overhanging slightly above the sidewalk. As a result, the countertop becomes multi-functional: supplying a workable surface for the chefs and providing space outside for cups and elbows
