This bakery shop in Osaka has been refurbished by Japanese firm Ninkipen! with bread displayed on a wooden sleeper and the kitchen sat behind an exposed concrete counter.
As well as the counter, an adjacent shelf, the interior floor and terrace are finished in concrete.
Panscape 2jo has a wood-burning oven opposite the entrance and two stools also made from sleepers on the terrace.
The shop’s existing sash windows, which faced onto the street, have been replaced with a curtain wall of glazing.

Here's some more from the architects:
This is the interior design for a bakery shop in Osaka.
This is on the first floor of the building which have particular atmosphere after buildings around here was rebuilt.
First of all, we tried to regain original expression by removing reformed aluminum sashes and setting the wooden sashes.
Next, in the inside, we developed the antique showcase a boulanger keeping with love by putting on the log weighs 500kg, and designed a long counter makes of aluminum has the thickness of 10mm to be able to display bread freely.
We are looking forward to mastering the space by repeating the trial and error like a stone oven putting here.
