This bakery and delicatessen is the first UK outpost of the fashionable Milanese chain.
Works on the Wardour Street premises focused on support for the main oven, a 5m cube of French brick with a mass of some 50 tonnes. To this end a steel frame, both structurally and thermally isolated from the existing building’s frame, was installed on a new foundation.
Other works included a new accommodation stair and justification of the existing structure for stone floor and wall finishes and stone furniture.
