The concept stems from the desire to bring the tradition of Sicilian street food into a shop. As a matter of fact the food is served in the “coppo”, a typical paper cone for take-away food.

The design intervention aims at keeping the original aspect of the place and maintaining the succession of the spaces with their new functions: sales area, cooking area and laboratory area.
Inside the sales area is the counter that has the typical characteristics of a street banquet. This consists of a support base made of larch and glass strips and an overlying iron structure from which hang the lamps that illuminate the entire space.
A larch strip wraps the floor and folds over the walls, becoming a support element. The banquet rests on it and becomes the protagonist of the space. It is linked to a wall of resin panels and iron struts and a glass pane allows the public to see the cooking area.
The project is characterized by the use of few materials, in harmony with the freshness of the island context: strips in natural and white painted larch, blue resin and thin black iron structures.
A strip of resin marks the entrance threshold, invite guests to enter and complete the design of the flooring.
