This Jungle Rooftop Restaurant by Loop Design Studio Will Appeal to All Your Senses | Tulum

This Jungle Rooftop Restaurant by Loop Design Studio | Tulum

Nestled in Chandigarh, this attractive jungle rooftop restaurant designed by Ar. Suvrita Bhardwaj and Ar. Nikhil Pratap Singh at Loop Design Studio is an experimental paradox in the brutalist context of the city. Drawing its inspiration from the Mexican getaway destination by the same name, Tulum is curated as a superfluous, green and vernacular oasis. Bamboo arched passage, dynamic seating area, use of organic materials such as stone, cane, mosaic and wood, and cane light fixtures are some of the striking features of this restaurant.

Freestanding Cane Umbrella Structures

The dreamy set-up consists of freestanding cane umbrella structures supported on actual tree trunks that create a semi-permeable superstructure above.

The restaurant has an open pizzeria and a bar on opposite corners that are created using an organic material palette of mosaic, stone, cane and wood.

Cave-Like Set Up

A restaurant section is designed as a cave-like corner with undulated walls created in mud plaster.

The curvilinear walls warp the rigidity and create a free-flowing volume where surfaces transform into niches and benches.

The corner radiates its energy yet coming together fluidly with the rest of the space.

Tulum is an ode to nature and the vernacular to create a different eating experience for the city's people.
