Burger King is tapping the Asian market with patio themed franchises, the BK Garden Grills, so that people can enjoy an experience rather than eat quickly and leave. Since flame grilling is often associated with barbecue, the design team of Outofstock Singapore decided to bring the outside in. The restaurants are furnished with lounge-like upholstered seatings that are waterproof, wooden tables, pendant lamps made from clay gardening pots, wooden shelves holding BK posters, plants along the window ledges, and walls mimicking various raw materials. The overall atmosphere reminds us of college town cafés, not the home of the whopper…and that’s good. We like!
