Back to all
As architects deeply invested in community enhancement, we are thrilled to announce the successful construction of a delightful local bakery in the heart of Newbury, as previously reported in the Reading Chronicle.

The transformation of an existing outbuilding on our client’s land into this charming bakery represents a testament to collaboration, creativity, and the power of adaptive reuse. The bakery, Solaris Bakehouse, will have its grand opening in March 2024 and will not only provide fresh baked goods for the local area with an online subscription, but it will also be home to baking lessons. Our client’s vision for the outbuilding transcended mere functionality; it embodied a commitment to revitalizing the local economy and fostering community engagement. We were invited to a soft opening of the bakery last month in which the client baked pizzas for all of the team involved in the project. The grand opening of the bakery will mark the culmination of months of meticulous planning, collaboration, and hard work. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our client for entrusting us with their vision and to the local community for embracing this new addition to the Newbury landscape with open arms. As architects, we take immense pride in our role as custodians of the built environment, shaping spaces that inspire, connect, and endure. The bakery stands as a testament to our shared belief in the transformative power of architecture to enrich lives and strengthen communities.
