Design Highlight: Pattie Pattie

A few weeks ago I was invited to the opening of a new burger concept opened called Pattie Pattie. My first thought obviously was that we had too many burger joints already, most tasted the same and we really didn’t need any more. But I still went to the opening and although the burger was forgetful, the space wasn’t.

Pattie Pattie has to be one of the coolest-looking burger joints in Kuwait. I love spaces that bring something visually new to Kuwait, places that transport you to another place, there are a few spots that do it really well, Boost and Ovo for example are two that come to mind. Pattie Pattie is another place now that does the same.

The design of Pattie Pattie was created by the local creative studio WEFT and was inspired by the American fast food culture and the iconic mid-century architecture of California.

The design of the building was born from the limitations imposed on that plot of land. The land measured 365m2 but the permit limited the building size to just 5x18m (90m2). The exterior space had no particular restrictions, as long as the vertical structure was 90m2. As a result, WEFT designed a large canopy cutting across the full width of the plot in a dynamic diagonal composition. To further enhance the size of the small restaurant, they raised the plot by 30cm to frame the building and create a larger sense of scale.

Every design element had a reason from the bold colors to the integration of design-driven playful accessories. The result is basically this beautiful vibrant space that has now become a landmark in the neighborhood.

Amazing design! Btw, what were in the vending machines there? And is the place on any delivery apps?

If I remember correctly one of them had A&W Root Beer and the others had mystery packs that contained I think merch or gift certificates. Not sure if it’s on delivery or not honestly

Good luck to them. Hope the food is good because you cant deliver mid-century architecture with Talabat.

“But I still went to the opening and although the burger was forgetful, the space wasn’t.” GOD DAMN! Mark, you’re an absolute savage. XD

Something about those colors making me want a burger fries and cherry coke, the color scheme seems very close to mcdonalds in that era.
