Temper Pastry Chocolate is a gourmet chocolate and pastry shop is located in West Vancouver.
The programme requirements for the 1400 square foot store included allocating space for fully functioning chocolate and pastry kitchens while maintaining an inviting open retail & café experience. The clean contemporary design was used to provide a clean and unadorned backdrop for the innovative quality of chef Steven Hodge’s handcrafted products. Custom glass display cases, natural materials and linear lighting were used in order to achieve the bright, clutter free layout of the space. An array of cut-off rolling pins and glass shelves were used to create a unique and functional display for the products. Windows in the wall separating the kitchen and retail spaces add to the open concept, providing a view for customers to experience the process and specialty of the product being created on site.
Subtle accents were used to support the overall design concept: from the pendant lights chosen for their “pastry” aesthetic, to the custom wall covering with embedded light box of original graphics and the custom entry door pull branded with the client’s logo.
Temper garnered an A.R.E. Design Award for Retail Design, recently held in Las vegas.
