Stepping inside the bakery, you are immediately greeted by small upholstered barriers that guide you to the service counter, and also provide a place to lean while you wait for your order.

At one end of the bakery, there’s a black tiled wall that surrounds a window, allowing you to have a glimpse of the bakers at work.

At the other end of the bakery is a seating area where the design inspiration can easily be seen in the form of tiered seating, that represents a sloping tea mountain.

The staggered steps between the fields are available for rest, with upholstered green benches providing a comfortable place to relax between the planters.

Two sets of handrails with hidden lighting, rise gently alongside the steps, providing safety and acting as a guide to the top tiers.
