An Inside Look at Luneurs Boulanger & Glacier in Shanghai

Luneurs Boulanger & Glacier is a bakery and ice cream shop situated in a busy little walking street in the Former French Concession, Shanghai. The approachable interior was completed by hcreates, an interior design studio based in Shanghai.

“This French run neighbourhood store consists of an onsite working bakery and front retail space. Views through to the back-working space allow for the customer to visually interact with the baking process. The front shop space is intimate and compact, combining traditional rustic elements with sleek modern surfaces. The presentation of the baked goodies, combine a more traditional display at the back with a minimalistic “hero product” display on the counter. Gold highlights, including a large gold convex mirror on the wall reference Luneur/the moon and bring an upmarket touch to the interior. Clean lines and distressed textures feature on the walls, floor and ceiling. The terrazzo floor, inlaid with brass strips, continue these lines, hand-laid piece by piece over a number of days. This attention to detail within the design is also reflected in the passion and quality in the craft of the ice cream and baked product,” explained Hannah Churchill, owner and director designer of hcreates
