GET STRAIGHT TO THE PINT!

Bold colours in the brand’s contrasting hues and quirky illustrations are some of the delicious interior details to indulge your phone’s appetite for Instagram worthy shots in this gelato spot.

In contrast to the mature street right beside, the shophouse’s doors open up to an unexpected, lively symmetrical paradise that will bring out the 5-year-old in you. Filled with intriguing design elements that excite, the curves within draw focus on focal features of the shop and visually expands the space. The heart of the shop extends its fluidity onto the floor like a gelato melting in summer. Taking cues from the owner’s other passion, sports, the “melts” continue from the coloured wall to the adjacent concrete. Its vivid continuity suggests a race to the fantasy of flavours, attracting curious passers-by to peek at operating hours of the day. Done in a waffle-inspired pattern, a white-tiled wall eases the transition from concrete to colours and serves as a practical approach for the dry kitchen.

By optimizing their pint-sized layout and sprinkling design purposefully, NOM invites you to be immersed in a boy’s dream of scooping up quality gelato.
