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.

"The facade of the patisserie is facing south but the view is not quite nice, some local stores were across the street from the patisserie, so we decided to design a translucent interface which blurs the direct view across the street but keeps the sunlight," he continued. "We wanted to create a very intimate and tender eating experience."

A globe-shaped clear glass handle on the patisserie's white front door continues the theme of transparency.
Inside, a row of curved seating with charcoal upholstery is recessed into one of the patisserie's walls, creating an undulating effect.

"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...
