FAT’s bakery for Peyton & Byrne is good enough to eat
“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.
