“The whole thing is like being submerged in fondant,” says Charles Holland of FAT, the architect of this baker’s shop for restaurateur Oliver Peyton.

Traditional with a twist, the shop has a pink and pistachio mosaic floor, white brick tiled walls with peppermint green icing (or, rather, grouting) and an old-fashioned picture window to evoke universal childhood memories of what a bakery should be.

The lollipop lighting is a simple chandelier of reflector bulbs used in spot-lights.

Peyton & Byrne is tucked into the listed lobby between Heal’s and Habitat on London’s Tottenham Court Road, and sits underneath its original ceiling of opalescent ceiling tiles set in a bronze grid. The client also plans to extend the brand into additional locations.
