Gontran Cherrier

Simple, cosy and rustic Richmond bakery

Gontran Cherrier

Gontran Cherrier has a bold and daring approach to baking – the chef is constantly changing his menu. Cherrier’s past hits include squid-ink rolls, kimchi quiches and loaves of bread made with molasses and coriander.

We where lucky enough to deliver the third Australian venue in particular is a place for Cherrier to experiment.

A Rustic Bakery

Like its siblings (there’s also one in Hawthorn), the Richmond store has a simple, rustic feel. Rough brickwork and concrete floors combine with timber dado panelling to strike a balance between old and new. A service counter set on hefty stone plinths keeps the spotlight on the store’s pastries (made with imported Lescure butter and Gontran’s favourite French flour).

An intimate dining area at the back of the eatery encourages the steady stream of office workers trickling in for coffee to extend their stay. It comprises cosy banquettes, a handful of wooden tables and chairs, and a mirror illuminated by two spherical lights that give the space a welcome airiness.

We loved delivering this project, the project team on this job was experienced, dedicated and passionate about the product, the people and the area.

It’s all about the process!

Design Phase

Our Consultant and Designer meet with you to discuss your business fitout needs and get a clear perspective on your vision. We will discuss your requirements and what challenges you are currently facing with your workspace; whether it’s a size issue, a functionality improvement or simply a workspace update, we will work with you to find the most suitable commercial fitout solution for your requirements and budget.


We prepare proposals based on the brief from the initial meeting where we go through and plan the look and feel of the proposed business fitout project. This is where we get feedback from you so we can proceed to the next step. We offer cost effective solutions for an affordable fitout, so your budget is always top of mind.

Site Commencement

All costs are agreed upon during this stage and the outline of the project and timelines are discussed. We organise all relevant permits to be approved and issue you with a final Construction Set, Fixtures and Finishes Schedule and a Project Schedule.


We carefully source and recruit the right contractors for each fitout construction job. We work with our team of Designers and suppliers to ensure consistency across the look and feel of the project, and conduct weekly site visits with you so you can check in on the fitout and how it is coming together.

At completion, we conduct a handover to you after ensuring you’ve had a thorough walk through of the new space and make sure you are happy with your completed project. We continue to work with you to take care of any additional needs and ensure they are resolved in readiness for your relocation.
