This is a renewal project for a pastry shop in Maebashi City, Gunma Prefecture, which has been loved by the local community.
Initially, the plan was to extend the existing pastry shop L’amour to create a space for a new cafe Kanowa and a bakery Kyou. However, Kanowa and Kyou were finally separated from L’amour and built as a new building.

The interior of the new shop was illuminated in low light so that the sunshine can be felt through clerestory windows. The walls were plastered to create shadows.

L’amour was reduced in size and the counter was renewed. A new cobblestone path was built between the existing shop and the new shop, reminiscent of French cities. By building Kanowa and Kyou separately from L’amour, Kanowa and Kyou became a more distinctive building that expressed the concept of the new business.
