The original idea was to create a continuous space to install the ice-cream shop point of sale and the café area, with material gradually nuanced to define each of the areas.
The light at the premise highlights the materials used like the oak wood and marble, represented by the Neolith Calacatta model, the versatility of which made it possible to use the same material for the floors, walls, monolithic bars, bathrooms and furnishings. These solutions would have been impossible with conventional marble.
On a technical level, the countertops really stand out. The long monolithic bars, where you can really see the different edges, create quite a play on volume. The work done to create a place that transmits tradition and artisanry yet with a very modern design was quite complex.
