Concept - Design

The Colombo-based Architectural visualiser/designer, Thilina Liyanage envisioned Sky Treetop Restaurant, a suspended Pelican Beak-shaped restaurant overlooking Sri Lankan mountain, inspired by Pitcher Plant. 

The Sky Restaurants, as they’re called, cantilever off the precipice of a mountain, giving you a certain thrill as you dine. Its design takes cues from a pitcher-plant, using a boat-like base that projects from the slope, with a slightly raised roof to protect you from the elements while also giving you a stunning view of the mountainous terrain in front of and below you. Like a lot of Liyanage’s designs, the Sky Restaurant uses curved bamboo pieces, giving it a distinctly tropical feeling that does set up a contrast against the mountains… but then again, look at it from above and it almost looks like fairy-lights strung around the mountain!
