Juno The Bakery
With a Palette of Comforting Natural Materials and a Focus on the Art and Craft of Baking, Frama Interior Architecture Has Created a New Concept for Copenhagen’s Award-Winning Juno the Bakery.
In the fall of 2020, the award-winning Juno the Bakery opened the doors to their new location in Copenhagen, with site-planning and interior design by FRAMA Interior Architecture, a division of FRAMA.
With a holistic design concept that seamlessly brings together bakery production, service area, guest seating, and an urban garden, the new Juno retains the friendly neighborhood spirit of their original bakery but now features expanded space for guests to dine in, relax, and gather together. Additionally, the new Juno features large windows that provide opportunities for guests and passersby to observe the Juno team at work.
The successful partnership between Juno and FRAMA Interior Architecture was informed by a set of shared values. From the very beginning, FRAMA’s spatial concept was guided by the same values that have made Juno the Bakery a beloved local institution and a globally-recognized pioneer in artisanal baking: quality, authenticity, and an uncompromising attention to detail.
Located at the corner of Løgstørgade and Århusgade, just two doors down from the bakery’s original home, the new Juno occupies 120 m2 on the ground level of a five-story residential building in the heart of Copenhagen’s leafy Østerbro district. Inside, the new Juno was conceived as a series of four primary spatial zones: bakery production, client services, indoor seating, and 20 m2 of front garden seating. Each zone has a distinct function that engages in a natural dialogue with the others to create an elegant and logical spatial dynamic. In the future, the new bakery will be linked together with the original Juno space, once that location is renovated and repurposed. Taking over this new, larger location would allow for expanded and more efficient baking production as well as for more logical flow of people through space.
Just as with the original Juno, the careful craft of hands-on bakery production remains a focus of the interior design. Large, street-facing and interior facing windows would allow for a transparent connection between the bakers at work, guests inside the bakery, as well as the surrounding neighborhood. In this way, the traditions of artisanal baking are being presented to the public in an informal and contemporary way, with Juno’s team of talented craftspeople at the center.
