Sterling Village Center. A pretty Zen little shopping center next to a buddhist temple. We generally recommend keeping your shoes on before walking inside any of the shops or restaurants here.
One unique offering that we have for this particular center is a turn-key bakery. I had a blast shooting the virtual tour for this space due to all of the various reflective surfaces. There was a lot of hiding involved. To take the tour of this space with me, visit our website and click the tab labelled “Virtual Tours” and then Suite 114.
One fun note, I actually shot this tour in reverse, as I knew I was in a bit of a time crunch, and wanted to hit the areas I knew would be challenging due to reflections and trimming required. So naturally I started on the actual Baking side of things. But for the sake of the tour, I’ll run through it the way I intended it to be toured.
So first of all, you have just the main cafe area:Here you have some seating, and various display cases used for showing off your baked goods, as the is a bakery. Pretty nice layout if you ask me. I personally like the bright red counter.
After that, if you walk down to the right, you’ll find the office: Sometimes, you need to get some administrative tasks done when you’re not baking, or selling your baked goods. Its a nice perk to have.
After that, there is a little sink that separates the two spaces. I personally love lots of sinks, because I’m a bit of a germaphobe. It definitely pays off to stay clean in food service industries.
Up next is the bakery. Its where all the baking magic happens. I happen to know very little about baking, but I’ve heard that its basically tasty chemistry, and I can get behind that:This bakery comes with tons of baking equipment, and is ready to go day one, so with this tour I really sought to capture that aspect. Lots of shots directly in front of equipment for convenience sake.
