About the Project

The Fairyland Premium Kids Café designed by Wutopia Lab. The client wishes kids can enjoy learning with entertainment. The exterior façade of the restaurant is made of aluminum panels with punctures of various sizes on it to create an effect of ripples woven together. Behind these ripples a world between reality and dreams is created for kids.

The front lobby is a circular space surrounded by forest of lights, which is composed of 1000 acrylic tubes that are able simulate the effect of sunlight shining through thick layers of leaves to provide a unique forest experience, with the reflection of the mirrored wall. The central area is the Cloudy Town, the wonderland for kids. They can enjoy the Ocean of Clouds made of acrylic, with tree houses, slides, ball pit hidden in between.

The Golden Castle

At the corner of the Cloudy Town is the Golden Castle, where there will be candle lights, fireplace, and shiny silverware for kids. A white gallery, hidden away from the center, is a little space where kids can have some privacy with friends. Red velvet curtain slowly revealed the gateway to old memories with neon lights, wood floor, beautiful wallpaper and crystal chandeliers. The future and the past are now interweaved, and the stage is ready for you to dance.

Day dream: Cotton Candy / Space Travel

Restroom becomes the day dream for kids. Cotton candies become girls’ favorite cloud lamp and mirror and boys can be astronauts traveling the space.

What’s unique about it

The whole design was inspired by a dream of the architect's daughter, who painted it herself. The architect believes that this dream-presenting painting is resonating with children of similar ages. The design of the children's restaurant is started. The function setting of this restaurant is not the same as the other children's restaurants we have done. Because other children's restaurants have fun and eat, but in this restaurant, there are teaching aids developed by the school, so that children can learn through play.

We use two kinds of acrylic to the extreme, one is flaky, layered, and expressed the effect of the cloud. The second tubular acrylic, made the forest of light. We used a perforated aluminum plate that combined with lighting to create a dizzying effect on the ground.

The whole design is built around the dream. Its function is divided into two parts. The first one is the children's entertainment area. All children's entertainment and activities are carried out around this dream. For example, the trampoline slide expresses the children playing in the clouds, playing, and pursuing. The state of dreams. While the surrounding dining area are an abstract world, including theaters, villages, art galleries, churches, markets, and a slightly figurative representation of dreams.

We generally think that the world of children should be colorful, but in fact, if the use of color restraint, it will stimulate the imagination of children.
