Petit Cabanon Café

Ternullomelo Architects designed the Petit Cabanon Café located in Lisbon, Portugal, like a “parent and child cafe”.

Here is the project description:

Petit Cabanon Cafe is located in Parque das Nações, Lisbon, and is meant to be a “parent and child cafe” – a place in which parents can enjoy having a coffee, catching up with friends etc., without having to worry about their children’s surroundings. For this purpose it houses a playroom with a playground for children.

It is not intended to be or feel like a nursery or a playground. Instead it is meant to be a comfortable and intimate place for adults (whether they have children or not). To accomplish this, warm lighting  and materials, such as pinewood laminate flooring, were used and a great focus was put on acoustics.

To accommodate the children, a house archetype shaped playroom/playhouse, stocked with books, toys and an indoor playground was built. Outside of the playhouse it’s the grown-ups world, inside the children’s one: walls, floor and ceiling are yellow, everything is scaled to their size – even the height of the two big window sills, which allow the parents to easily watch-out for their children.
