10-Second Studio Tour: Bread Hive

by Maxwell Tielman

At the end of each summer, the gang here at Design*Sponge takes a weeklong break to rest up, rejuvenate and get re-inspired before autumn approaches. This summer, I decided to pay a little visit to a place that is always near and dear to my heart: my hometown, Buffalo, New York. The purpose for my trip was twofold. One: a visit to chez Mom was long overdue. Two: I wanted to check out all of the latest and greatest things that my fine city has to offer—and boy, did it not disappoint! From fabulous new farm-to-table restaurants to snazzy new watering holes, Buffalo’s renaissance seems to be going full-force ahead! Of the many new additions to my hometown, though, I discovered my favorite on a chance walk through the farmer’s market: Bread Hive, a worker cooperative bakery owned and run by three totally awesome, totally rad young women. Opened just this year, Bread Hive is in many ways more than just a bakery—it is a movement and a model in terms of its gastronomy, politics and sheer badassery. Founded upon the belief that a business’s workers should also be its owners, Bread Hive is an exercise not just in bread making, but in forging a sense of community and connectedness with food. I had the pleasure of dropping into Bread Hive’s West Side HQ for a quick tour and what I got was a real treat. Not only is their bread quite literally the best I have ever had (and I swear, I’m not just being biased), the atmosphere is one that seems integral to the making of great food: friendly, laid-back and fueled by infectious passion! Check out the 10-Second Tour above or all of the photos from our visit after the jump! —Max
