Adam Bench Architects: Fredericks, 1 Bridge Street, Derbyshire

Adam Bench Architects: Fredericks, 1 Bridge Street, Derbyshire
After gutting the former sweet shop and rearranging the internal structure of the three-storey building, the 100-year-old Frederick’s of Bakewell is now a modern Italian gelateria in a town renowned for its almond-based tarts. The contemporary feel of the bare steel, lightboxes and exposed brick is countered by the sobriety of the cleaned-up fascia, with frosted glass lettering looking out on to the high street. Bench said that one of the benefits of the job – aside from the satisfaction of completing a complex project on a tight site – was receiving part-payment in ice cream.
