BAKERIES! Potenza Bakery and Winestore by Core Architecture, Washington, DC

October 31st, 2013 by retail design blog

Within the Potenza restaurant concept, are two retail components that engage the streetfront and provide amenities for the residential population of the building. The bakery adjoins the historic hall and draws guests in for breakfast, lunch, or dessert with fresh baked breads, cannolis, gelato, and other Italian specialties to eat in or take on the go. It also allows the restaurant to highlight the authenticity of its house made offerings in a market setting. The design blends vibrant red kitchen fixtures with a delicate Italian marble mosaic floor.

The winestore is situated around the corner and is adjacent to the residential building entry. The approachable retail shop has a rustic attitude, embodied in tumbled stone flooring and original pitted plaster and brick walls. The narrow space has a straightforward layout for easy browsing and also incorporates a charcuterie and cheese display for pairing with the various wines.
