LIDL, a popular grocery store that operates over 10,000 stores across Europe, and the United States, recently hired architecture & interior design firm mode:lina to design and build their new restaurant at their headquarters in Poznan, Poland.
“The LIDL Poland’s aim to continuously improve the environment for their employees is reflected in the project of a completely new restaurant in the company’s headquarters in Jankowice, in the suburbs of Poznań. The task of arranging the interior was given to the architects from mode:lina architekci studio. To make the positive change more tangible, the part of the building designated for the new restaurant was expended by a glass pavilion. In addition, the creation of the new technological line and the increase in the capacity of the kitchen, opened the way to designing a comfortable and employee friendly space, which became the showcase of the company. The architects form the mode:lina architekci studio invoked the fresh and natural products offered in the LIDL stores. The whole concept strongly refers to the company’s philosophy. A lot of natural, raw wood intertwines with colorful tiles, referring to the atmosphere of traditional markets, and natural greenery accents. Also, there are direct references to the LIDL stores, such as those associated with different departments’ decorative logos. To create a conversation friendly atmosphere and maximum comfort, the architects divided the spaces into zones with various forms of seats.”
