 The fumare Bar former smoking room will be transformed to a bakery. The stair has been replaced with transforming the existing structure into a mirrored and material inverted element.

 

Round cake forms are stacked on the bottom to a tower, the upper part becomes more simple.

 

Smoked oak risers are used as lost formwork and remain in place after pouring the concrete. The concrete is added with anthroposophical Pneumatit to free the positive forces in the space.

 

The wooden handrail will be added in a second step.
