The Lolly-Laputan Kids Restaurant designed by Wutopia Lab has officially opened its doors to the public in Dalian, China. Co-owned by PACEE Education and Fairyland, this cafe is the first educational family restaurant in China where 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 has been created by Shanghai-based architectural firm Wutopia Lab for kids.
The front lobby is a circular space surrounded by a forest of lights, which is composed of 1000 acrylic tubes that are able to 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. Here, they can enjoy the Ocean of Clouds made of acrylic, with tree houses, slides, ball pit hidden in between. Surrounded the Cloudy Town is the food area.
At the corner of the Cloudy Town is the Golden Castle, where there 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.
Just a little further on, a red velvet curtain slowly reveals the gateway to old memories with neon lights, wood floor, beautiful wallpaper and crystal chandeliers. Restroom becomes the daydream for kids. Cotton candies become girls’ favorite cloud lamp and mirror and boys can be astronauts traveling the space.
