The facade of this cafe design is covered with round, aluminium panels perforated with holes. Some of them overlap to create “ripples” or surround the building’s various entrance points.

The front lobby is a circular room, where seating is surrounded by what the designers describe as a “forest of lights“. Made up of 1,000 acrylic tubes hung in a ring-shaped formation, the lights are meant to simulate the effect of sunlight shining through dense layers of leaves in a forest.

The adjacent main cafe has a largely open-plan layout that revolves around a central area coined Cloudy Town – it’s defined by rows of undulating white acrylic panels that run across the floor and ceiling. Kids can run amongst the “clouds” and discover features such as a carousel, hidden tree-houses, slides and a ball pit. Cloudy Town is also dotted with a series of house-shaped timber structures that contain miniature kitchen and supermarket playsets.

On the opposite side of the room, a red, velvet curtain can be raised to reveal a stage for performances. It’s been finished with wooden flooring, neon lights and a dramatic crystal chandelier.
