Karachi Kanteen is a local food chain which has a desi cuisine originating from our traditional roots. Our Architecture Firm, Archicubes had the privilege of designing and executing, since we also function as a Construction Company in Lahore, three projects under this banner, all located in Lahore. The idea behind this venture was to create a space targetting all generations of the city, where they could reminicse the days in which the concept of a canteen was at its peak. The atmosphere of a free space, where an individual has the freedom to express his views, while sitting in an interactive environment. Such a space must be designed which could give the dweller a joyous experience, rather than the regulated dicipline of a formal setting.
