Fressen Artisan Bakery began as a Portland Farmer’s Market stall, with leased production space and the goal of owning its own building one day.
With both financial and physical building planning help from Constructive Form, they were able to adapt a former auto shop and garage into a new home for their wholesale bakery, Viennese Kaffeehaus inspired café and retail area.
Our design captured natural daylighting from existing building openings and created a double-height area for the café space, creating an open feel in the space, as well as borrowed light into the back-of-house area over the lower interior eight-foot partition walls which separate the café and prep kitchen. New glazed operable doors at the east end of the building provide flexible indoor and future outdoor café seating space.
