Plain Vanilla


Located in Tiong Bahru, Singapore, Plain Vanilla started in 2011 by lawyer-turned-baker Vanessa Kenchington, pride themselves in baking cakes with the taste of familiar, home-made goodness. When they decided to set up their flagship store and kitchen in Tiong Bahru, the owners wanted a space that could engage the residents of this iconic neighborhood in a more intimate way, and to create a closer relationship with their customers.

We divided the long shophouse space into two sections, a naturally ventilated “living room” in the front, and an integrated retail and open kitchen space at the rear.
