As part of the brief to design a building complex in Sao Paulo, Triptyque Architects designed a restaurant that ‘floats’ above the main structure.

Entitled ‘The Observatory’ the restaurant appears to hover above the rest of the three-storey building and is supported by a series of columns that reach to the ground level.

The restaurant is designed with a reflective exterior - created by using stainless steel panels which help to make the structure stand out against the grey urban environment it sits in.

Set within a busy architectural environment where the streets are full of buildings set next to buildings, The Observatory is a distinctive and attractive design.
