The Pink Zebra Restaurant, located in the Swaroop district of Kanpur, India, was designed by the RENESA architecture studio.

Realized by Renesa Studio it immediately remembers the imagery of the director Wes Anderson. RENESA design and architecture studio has realized a 4,000 sq.ft. place with a minimal style and clearly points to the photography and imaginary of Wes Anderson, and also the history as a city of the British colonial empire.

The restaurant is situated in one of the most ancient palaces of Kanpur, it’s composed by a lounge and a bar at the first floor, a dining room downstairs and a terrace.

The core idea was to create a hybrid rather than pure, compromising rather than clean and leave the visitor hanging in the middle of an artistic sea. Ideating initiated from the clients love for Wes Anderson’s set ideology and his love for fearful quirkiness along with constructed frames throughout this space.

The Pink Zebra with its unique facade design creates an everlasting effect on the passersby and invites them into a magical, expertly crafted world whose spaces are framed to treat the eyes.

Sometimes, architecture seeks to find a harmony between the disconnect of design and gastronomy through a phenomenological relationship of branding.

The Pink Zebra breaks the monotony of the normal style of food culture in Kanpur and creates an exhibition-al blend of architectural elements into the culinary mode.
