Bentel & Bentel complete Cielo Restaurant for Angela Hartnett and Gordon Ramsay at Boca Raton 

This restaurant is the new “jewel-in-the-crown” at a Floridian resort and club. Located on the top floor of the resort’s 27-storey tower, the space offers near 360-degree views of the ocean, the inter-coastal waterway, and the Florida hinterland. The design emphasizes the views outward. To this end, we incorporated a series of platforms which terrace down from the center of the building to the windows at the perimeter. To capitalize on the reflected light coming up from the surface of the sea below, and as a way of dramatizing the prominent horizon line, all of the ceilings are highly reflective. These capture the light as well as the motion of the waves below. At night, these surfaces reflect the candlelight at each table, creating the impression of a starry sky above. In contrast to the white ceilings, walls, and furniture, the floors and window frames are dark blue, a color that disappears when seen against the contrast of the bright sky outside.
