Studio pha was challenged to create an inviting and spacious atmosphere in a narrow and small space. Focusing on the original circular skylight as the centerpiece for the design, the architects inserted curvaceous wooden slats to give the shop its bright and compact bottleneck shape. The thin wooden slats measure 21 millimeters in thickness and are made of birch veneer plywood.

In contrast to the bright, warm-toned wood, the flooring is made of dark gray squeegee-grade microtopping. The furnishings were kept minimalist to maximize the illusion of space. The furniture includes a few simple tables made of medium-density fiberwood as well as a seating area and display case built into the walls.
