Gelarto Rosa

The pearl, Doha 2017


A homemade IceCream shop, taking you into the privacy and the familiarity of a home. The warmth of country house with all its internal details, the kitchen, dining room, library and living room with a fireplace with all the small details from the coat hanger, the wooden rocking horse and all the family pictures and frames. 


To follow the original franchise theme, the space is sliced diagonally into two settings: An outdoor Parisian café space that opens up into a warm house. The inside-outside spaces are defined by imaginary line that slices the island table. The change in ceiling, flooring, materials, and even table finish create the illusion of a sliced cut between the inside and outside.
