Temper Pastry Chocolate

Temper Pastry Chocolate is a gourmet chocolate and pastry shop is located in West Vancouver.

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.

Chocolate and Pastries

Hands went up quickly in the office when our latest project walked through the door.

These design sketches show the soon-to-be “Temper Chocolate & Pastry” in West Vancouver. Utilizing vertical grain fir and Carrara marble, this 1,200 sq.ft. retail space is set to open later this year.

We’ll continue to update as construction begins as both the interiors and branding develop.
