‘U’ Coppu’ 的店名来源于意大利盛放街头小吃的纸质容器coppu，是一家专门贩卖西西里街头油炸小吃的小食店。
‘U’ Coppu’ is a deli shop for fried food, designed with the aim to bring indoors Sicilian street food.
The project maintains unaltered the original vaulted spaces, where the new functions are hosted: seating area, the kitchen and the laboratory. The counter evokes a typical street food’s counter. It is made by simple material such as larch, glass and a iron framework, from which light bulbs hang, illuminating the whole space. The seating area is separated from the kitchen by a glazed wall that allows customers to see food preparation, that is served in coppu, the typical street food paper cone. The floor is made by natural larch strip planking, which continues up the walls and ends in shelves. A resin band on the floor emphasizes the entry inviting to step into place, and the iron framework acts as graphic character of the whole project.
