Features:

The counter bar in the centre of the cafe, resembles the shape of a ships hull. In order to create the curved shape, we employed shipbuilding technologies. To make the final drawing we used the curved surface and diagram line development technique. In addition, we used plate forming and welding technologies also derived from shipbuilding to process the steel plates.
