sky on the fifth fine dining restaurant in guangzhou by clifton leung design

‘sky on the fifth’ fine dining restaurant in guangzhou by clifton leung design workshop



sandwiched between stretched fabric in an elongated sky light – an inverted ‘catwalk ceiling’ with glass runs the full
length of the restaurant. developed to create two different atmospheres, bringing in natural sunlight during daytime,
while creating a mood ambience at night, hong kong-based clifton leung design workshop has drawn influences from
a bird in flight to conceive the architectural wing structure of an LED ceiling.


resembling a bird in full flight with its wings extended and landed on a roof, the installation provides an upscale chic
design for the VIP glass chambers, where all 4 unique rooms are built on a raised platform, to create a floating and sky
dining experience, with spectacular views of the exterior greeneries and sunset.

a very soft ambience lighting and forms a welcoming and dazzling path leading guests into the restaurant
