Interior and furniture design of Chalaris’ pastry
Historical centre at the port of Tinos island
The pastry shop space is located on the ground floor, in one of the old narrow little streets of the historical centre of the island. The refurbishment process revealed many elements of the traditional structure of the building, such as the stone vaults and the old timber ceiling, which could be used only as a reference point. A big white marble originating form Vathy, Tinos, was used on the floor. Furniture design had as a reference the old traditional furniture of the island, while part of the project was to redesign and cover the old refrigerators and showcases with new surfaces and timber cases in order to reuse them. The design of the space aimed at creating an easy passage among the sweets and the delicacies, among the showcases on the right and left side, and at leaving enough free space for someone to move around. The presentation of the sweets continues on the central table with a direction towards the main piece of furniture with cookies and sweets at the deep end of the space.
