When: January 2015 - ongoing

Location: Corner Hopkins St and Barkley St, Footscray

Team: Ammon Beyerle, Caitlin Conley, Micha Woodhouse, Nicole Mechkaroff, Michelle Emma James, Matthew Tibballs

This project is low-cost new fit-out and renovation of a run-down bakery in Footscray. It includes an angled servers, storage bulkheads, new coffee window to the street, some lean-benches for takeaway and clean up and rearrangement of the current kitchen.

To’s Bakery is Ammon’s favourite Vietnamese bakery in Footscray. When visiting his brother in West Footscray, or on the way home to Ballarat, he regularly stops for two Vietnamese rolls. Phuong, the owner, prepares super-fresh, real quality food. After running for over 15 years, she has been looking forward to finally renovate the bakery and attract more business.

The design tries to maintain and open up the view through the shop on the corner, to and from the Footscray Market along to Little Saigon Market. On the weekend the corner is an informal street market. We are using bring colours and simple features to improve the functionality and feeling of a fresh and clean space.

We have successfully received a planning permit, and drawn up the design in detail, and are currently negotiating with a commercial builder.
