The Domnato Bakery project consists in the readjustment of an old house in a bakery, totaling 240 sqm of built area.

As a restoration strategy, it was decided to preserve the old façade and to mark the area of the new intervention in an orange box. So, the project consists of two volumes that are reproduced both inside and outside.

The strong color volume houses the production sites: confectionery, bakery, and kitchen. The old, blank area consists of the sector for bakery users.

This strong color is part of client’s visual ID and it is an example of how architecture must deal with branding and knowledges from other areas.

Also design objects were exclusively designed, with the aim of reinforcing the brand identity: the tiled mosaic benches allude to the location of the group’s stores through map graphics; the exhibition furniture and the hanging garden. The confectionery, at the entrance of the building, gives greater visibility for its production of fine sweets and aim to increase selling.

At bakery, a three-deck baking oven was imported from Portugal to guarantee constant production and to ensure customers can always find freshly baked bread throughout the day. The flux of clients and employees was studied meticulously to increase both buying appeal and to provide efficiency in productions areas.

The interior lighting design used high end spotlights to emulate solar illumination. Only high CRI (Color Rendering Index) led lamps were used to ensure the product’s appeals and the visual comfort for users. Solar Control films were used on windows to decrease the air-conditioning-demand, enhancing the thermal comfort, and decreasing the energy consumption.

The bathrooms use a single ceramic tile coating on the ceiling, walls, and floor, set in pagination with whole pieces.

The landscaping was implemented prioritizing the use of Brazilian plants that, in our reading, refer to the natural Amazonian environment, due to their size and leaf structure. A kitchen garden was also built for the consumption of the establishment.
All paints were custom made to this project by a local chemical industry to ensure both high resistance and color accuracy to client’s branding. The special orange polyurethane paint was developed to maintain a matte finish which is essential to this project mood, grabbing a contemporary touch and reenforcing the singularity of that building.

In the interior space it was used a restricted color palette focused in a small number of colors and finishes, so as not to call attention to the building. The furniture follows simple lines and an architecture without ornaments, seeking to respect the preponderance of the products and the selling purposes. The architecture must be a support to the main vocation of the project.
Livre Arquitetura is a Architecture and Design Studio based in the heart of Amazon which designs are often a mix of traditional and innovative aspects.

Blending of modern technologies and ancestral aesthetics and cultural roots they create a unique approach of contemporary architecture. Livre is inspired by simple everyday moments, art, nature, and by the unique richness of Amazon’s biodiversity.
