From the architect. FIKA is a house and a shop selling scandinavian sundries. The sundries are precious collections rather than just a commercial product. The customer who comes here comes to meet the products rather than just choosing a product. The things that are used on a daily basis and the products are all displayed on the shelf. When a teacup just washed comes on the shelf it becomes a marketable product.

By displaying commercial products and products that the owner uses in a daily life together on the shelf, the shop and the house links to each other and gives an expectation to connect with the neighborhood through life.
