YPYC Architects uses pink and white shades for N² patisserie in Hangzhou



YPYC Architects has paired pastel pink and white surfaces with glass bricks to make a small patisserie in Hangzhou appear more spacious.
Measuring just 40 square metres, the N² patisserie is located on a quiet city street with a south-facing facade.

In order to shield the interior from the street outside, YPYC Architects chose to install a wall of glass bricks across the storefront, to blur the view while also filtering and diffusing the direct sunlight.
"The project is located in a small, quiet street about 100 metres from one of the busiest streets in Hangzhou, and about 300 metres to the Westlake," founding partner Yan Zhang told Dezeen.

"Contrasting with the clean-cut storefront, the curve is the main language of interior space," the studio explained. "This can be seen in a series of wall seats on the left, and a round edge counter/cabinet at the f...
