/ Type of project: Restaurants
/ Location: Tenerife
La Cúpula Restaurant is the most important one within the restaurants in Jardines de Nivaria Hotel. La Cúpula was, with no doubt, the biggest challenge of this project. Located in the Canary Islands, where they have one of the most important astronomical observatories in Europe, it was impossible not to get inspired by the stars and the firmament that shelter the Teide.
This is the reason why the ceiling represents the explosion of a supernova, which at nights gets retro illuminated, generating a spectacular effect in all the space. Coming from that huge explosion, Tom Dixon’s lamps fall over the tables as if they where lava balls, gathering them and adding a big dose of drama.
The distribution of the space was thought to orientate all the guests to the amazing views at sunset time, when the sky of Tenerife melts with the ceiling of the restaurant.
