I am working on the last section of the 4th project for KLC – cafe with artisan bakery design.
According to the brief I was contacted by the person who purchased a shop of early 19th century in the busy market town of Lewes, East Sussex. The town sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty and is within the boundaries of the South Downs National Park, an area on the south coast of England surrounded by hills and near the sea. Alcohol will not be sold on the premises – the shop is not currently licensed – and the business will be open from 8 am until 8 pm serving food and drink throughout the day from breakfast to early supper. The shop will serve tea, coffee soft drinks and fresh juices as well as specialty bakery products and light meals in a cafe area with waiter service, and there will be a separate shop counter from which customers can buy products to take away.
I was looking for some inspiration to start the project and browsed the web searching for beautiful bakeries and cafes. Here is what I have found:
