The design was a true collaboration with the owner, Nobuko, the general contractor Bailey Davol / Studio Build, and Sayo Okada, architect at SA2 STUDIOS. Nobuko had a vision of the rustic french style and wanted to add coziness to it.
Sayo took us to visit to the local reclaimed wood company, Long Leaf, where we found amazing reclaimed oak from barns of New England to use on the walls and shelves. Her design goes well with Nobuko's authentic french/German bread and Japanese sweet pastries.
The space was leased in January, and the build out took about six months to complete.
Above are some of the pictures of the design and build out of KOKO Bakery.
