Text description provided by the architects. In the industrial zone of Ramat Ishay northern Israel, Inside an old abandoned carpentry shop a new branch of the Leggenda ice cream and yogurt was put up. To design a space with an airy and calm feeling, that the customer desired, in the space we had to work with, was rather difficult. This difficulty was caused by very low ceiling of only 2.30 m, the very long and narrow proportion of 4.50 x 18.50 m of the place on the foundation of the building that invaded into the inner space.

The main idea was to create two linear elements that will lead the costumer into the deepest parts of the shop where the cozy sitting places are located. By doing so the visitor passes by the ice-cream and yogurt displays. One element constructed by Lamy pine wood serves as sitting bar and camouflage for the foundations of the building. The other linear element, serves as the display for the ice cream and yogurt displays. We used dark colored concrete as paving in order to highlight these two elements.

The entrance steel door and welcome roof were created as a single piece. The large door and facade were slightly submerged into the inner space in order to entice the visitor into the place.
