For our first small-scale retail project, we were commissioned to redesign a one-story building for an ice cream parlor. The place was designed based on a mixture of wood tones and pop colors. This project unites the pop style with the rustic style and produces a hybrid that projects these in harmony.
The great challenge of this project was to manage a tight budget and develop an interior design that responds both to the needs of the client and to the current reality, COVID-19. The distribution of spaces and the distribution of tables for diners had to be rethought based on current guidelines, taking advantage of every last square foot of the premises.
