Itsumo is a collaboration between food . Originating from Batam, the dessert shop focusing on soft serve and tart products. The design itself mirrors the fun element & careful preparation of Itsumo’s product. Located in Canggu, a residential turns commercial neighbourhood, the building is set very close with the street and has a low-rise skyline. The pedestrian area is very active with people passing by to go to the beach or even just searching for food and local stores.
Mimicking the clay roof tiles and red bricks wall & paving that used in many buildings in the neighbourhood, the red colour is used all over the store; a little intervention in the streetscape to break the linear path in the pedestrian road, yet a bold way to attract the pedestrians to stop for a while and entered the site. The outdoor space is also serves as an urban furniture where the people can pause in the middle of the busy street; feeling the sea breeze and the blue sky as they enjoying their soft serve. The bamboo plants act as a visual buffer from the street to the site, a dust buffer for the interior and also a greenery for the pedestrian.
A built-in intersecting circular seating in the interior space is created as a way to create more seating in a rather small space. Each space that created from these arches give a different seating experience; there’s a space where people facing inwards, allowing conversation to occur and there’s also a space where people facing outwards for more privacy.
Using adaptive reuse method, all the column and roof structure is not demolished. The existing column is left standing in its original position and given a gap with a new roof. The circular shape is defining the new intervention and divided the outdoor and indoor space, making an interesting experience for both areas.
