Today, COVETED brings you one of the most extraordinary commercial projects based in Europaallee, Zürich, designed by dynamic duo DYER-SMITH FREY, the BECKERIA. In regards to what the concept symbolises, Beck is Swiss German for bakers and stands for good homemade bread, cakes, and pastries whereas RIA comes from the Italian word Galleria and stands for generous versatility under one roof.
Beckeria offers a versatile culinary experience that matches with the sumptuous 266 sqm interior space designed by Dyer-Smith Frey. When entering, the customer is welcomed by a generous and bright designed sales counter made of matt grey fair-faced concrete with a beautiful surface made of natural stone which is the centrepiece of BECKERIA.

To the left of the sales counter the light cereal area offers a healthy breakfast, furnished with high tables and chairs made of natural oak. On the right, dark woods, upholstered seating benches and chairs highlight the coffeehouse and lounge area with its own Barista Bar. The black marble Grill Bar, with an attached bar counter made of anthracite-coloured concrete, forms the gastronomic bridge from lunch to dinner.
The opposite high table with leather-covered bar stools is perfect for a quick lunch. A long dining table of light oak for 8 persons guarantees a convivial dinner in a warm and cosy atmosphere. An end-to-end solid wood herringbone parquet ﬂoor made of oiled light oak creatively pulls the Interior-Areas together.
The continuous black-painted, industrial-looking ceiling contrasts with the fine materials and thus creates an interesting tension. Expanded metal room dividers and suspensions act as structuring elements above the working areas and create transparent boundaries for the individual interior areas.
All the essential furniture, the tables, shelve elements, the room dividers and the lounge sofa are designs by DYER-SMITH FREY. The duo accomplished a harmonious conclusive and accessible interior to match the complex concept of the BECKERIA.
