The project maintains unaltered the original vaulted spaces, where the new functions are hosted: seating area, the kitchen and the laboratory.

The counter evokes a typical street food’s counter. It is made by simple material such as larch, glass and a iron framework, from which light bulbs hang, illuminating the whole space.

The floor is made by natural larch strip planking, which continues up the walls and ends in shelves.

A resin band on the floor emphasizes the entry inviting to step into place, and the iron framework acts as graphic character of the whole project.
