Convertible Cargo Cafes
Zucker&Betton LunchBox is a Pop-Up Restaurant for All Seasons and Spaces

By: Amelia Roblin (Superstar) Dec 6, 12

Upon first seeing the Zucker&Betton LunchBox, I immediately thought of Christchurch. The south island city in New Zealand can currently demonstrate how effectively shipping containers perform as functional coffee shops with a sustainable and aesthetic flair. This concept by Russian designers Denis Kalinin and Alexander Zhulin is quite similar, but proposes an additional level of adaptability.

The cargo café can be easily transported on the back of a truck to cater to public events, seasonal crowds in parks, construction sites and wherever a pop-up restaurant might be required. After closing time, the corrugated metal sides can be locked shut but when opened up, the Zucker&Betton LunchBox is quite the delightful sight. Two flanking patios are formed with the long walls pulled down and full floor-to-ceiling windows can either be sealed off or folded open to become transparent enclosures.
