Gapi Food and Beverage Villa

Consisting of Pastry shop and café in ground floor and Gastronomic restaurant in first floor. The design is inspired by the packaging ribbons of cake boxes; the architect created a double skin facade of an intense white, light and see-through; thus, providing to glazed interior spaces a protection from direct sun rays. The horizontal blades which envelop the 3 main facades rotate at 90 degrees depending on intimacy and sun orientation. During the night, a dynamic lighting composed of about a hundred of Led ribbons animate the facade with color changing scenarios.
