Bakery Dick Denzlingen

About the object

Anyone who wants to buy bread or indulge in coffee and cake in Denzlingen can now look forward to the modernised interior of the traditional bakery Dick. The family business has been serving customers in the Breisgau town since 1965. Because the sales rooms were getting on in years, owner Dick decided to carry out an extensive renovation to make the craft come alive for customers. The new interior, which combines modern design elements in cool anthracite with wooden components, presents itself pleasantly and brightly. To realise the windows, sliding doors and glass showcase, Dick brought the experts from Baier on board. Because in addition to fixed glazed elements, tilt and turn windows, automatic and manual sliding doors and a glass showcase had to be manufactured. And all of this had to be precisely made to measure. Baier solved the task with proven reliability and quality – and with a good eye for underlining the customer-friendly character of the business architecturally as well.

Tradition and innovation from a single source: modernised salesroom and café for Bakery Dick

The bakery Dick, founded in 1965, relies on the traditional craft of baking. In the bakery, breads have been baked the old-fashioned way for generations – honestly, transparently and without any frippery, as can be read on the company’s own website. This is also felt by their customers, who can experience the entrepreneurial spirit of the business in the ambience of the sales rooms after the extensive renovation. They are open, transparent and close to the customer. Wide, floor-to-ceiling window fronts and automatic sliding doors made of powder-coated aluminium open up the shop area and café visually, flooding the sales rooms with daylight and creating an inviting aura. The illuminated glass showcase displays the baked goods that whet the appetite for indulgence.

Metal construction interpreted in a modern way – from shop windows to sliding doors to glass display cases.

Robust outer walls, small wooden windows and a dark salesroom characterised the ambience of the Bakery Dick before the renovation. At the owner’s request, this was to change, as they wanted a contemporary and modern appearance for the traditional business. Baier produced the shop window element with automatic door, the floor-to-ceiling fixed glazing, tilt and turn windows and a manual sliding door to the bakery. The modern glass showcase was also made by Baier – all made to measure, of course.

To make the façade more open to the street side, the old aluminium elements and wooden windows were first dismantled, façade openings enlarged and replaced by custom-made aluminium windows. Especially for such large glass fronts, the light metal aluminium has proven itself, which can handle even large glass panes with ease. Another advantage: aluminium is weather-resistant, has a high level of corrosion protection, does not warp and is easy to clean. In order to make the interiors and façade look like one, the window fronts and doors were powder-coated in the anthracite grey RAL7016 colour.

Glass connects outside and inside

The new façade and interior consist of a mix of different components for which Baier is responsible and contribute to a new sense of space:

The entrance

Customers enter the sales rooms of the bakery via a centrally located light metal automatic door with two symmetrical, glazed elements. This is practical for both customers and staff. People with mobility impairments can enter the sales area and the café barrier-free. With the help of innovative sensors and electric motors, the sliding elements open and close and remain in the open position behind two fixed glazed elements. This also contributes to energy efficiency, because the automatic control keeps heat out in summer and cold in winter.

Particularly successful: A second, manual entrance door on the left serves as a possible escape door. It can also be used to create specific routes between the entrance and exit in the form of a “built-in street” – for example in the case of possible corona restrictions.

The salesroom

The attractive display of the product range is becoming increasingly important. At the bakery Dick today, a wide window without glazing bars provides customers with a direct view of the bakery’s sales counter, which was implemented in the form of a modern glass display case by Baier. This way, customers only have to enter the bakery when the range of products appeals to them and they want to buy something. However, the open design also invites new customers to make a first purchase when passing by by chance. For better visibility, the glass display case itself is illuminated – numerous ceiling spotlights support the culinary presentation of the baked goods.


The café

The automatic sliding door also leads to the bakery-café on the right side of the building. In addition to cosy seating groups inside, the most striking feature is the fixed glazed, floor-to-ceiling façade facing the street in a post-and-beam construction. It opens the café to the street side; at a wooden counter you can enjoy a coffee on stools directly at the window. Side window elements that can be turned and tilted provide fresh air; the café is separated from the salesroom by a glazed door so that there is no disturbance to the peace.


The glass display case

The new glass display case, which was custom-made by Baier after a precise briefing, ensures an appealing presentation of the baked goods. Here, the goods are presented, prepared and packed in a way that is visible to customers – and all this in strict compliance with hygienic requirements. Well-lit, it also benefits from a bright ambience in the morning or early evening.


The bakery

Baier also realised another sliding door between the sales room and the bakery. Because there is not as much through traffic here, it was made in a manual version. Fitted with frosted glass, the hustle and bustle is hidden behind concealed doors.
