Kukumuku – niche restaurant by Plazma Architecture

Kukumuku - niche restaurant by Plazma Architecture (1)

The project Kukumuku, by Plazma Architecture Studio, is a restaurant – theater located in Vilnius, Lithuania, being dedicated to families with children. Seldom public spaces are adapted to the needs of the children and due to this fact the designers were inspired to create this niche restaurant. The main objective was to give a special attention to the desires of the children and to create backgrounds and facilities that would attract them. The main functional areas of Kukumuku are same as those of a classic restaurant, a cupcake bar, a theater and a playground. The theater scene, where there are no plays, may be used for interactive activities, mini discos and educative programs. The furniture and the toys are ergonomic, being carefully chosen for the children.

The parents can calmly take their meal without worrying about the safety of the children. Considering children’s passion for active and dynamic games, small scale specific elements of architecture were conceived for them: slots in the walls that allow entering different spaces, play-houses and movable seats of various forms and textures, which allow children to create and form the play-zones on their own. Another creating atmosphere element of Kukumuku is the abstract painting on the walls. Thus, the designers tried to stimulate curiosity and creative thought. Above from classic illumination, decorative lamps, in the shape of small houses, were hanged from the ceiling. The attention to details gave a new dimension to space, the atmosphere at Kukumuku being warm, welcoming, familiar and capable to induce charming state of mind.
