Stickman Tribe’s unrivaled creativity and unshakeable vision manifests itself in Terra’s utopian design. Inspired by a treehouse, the restaurant evokes a cinematic experience as guests find themselves surrounded by thick foliage, the interlocking patterns of the structure, and the ocean breeze atop the swaying greenery.
The design inspiration for Terra came from the surrounding natural environment. The name Terra was chosen for the meaning in Latin which translates to ‘earth’ or ‘land’. The intricate venue features a series of platforms with semi-private dining cocoons and unbeatable island views.
Terra has been very cleverly designed to ensure that guests feel at one with nature. The pods of the structure are strategically layered in heights to ensure that no pod looks into the other and each provide a great view of the surrounding nature. So, this led the team to explore using foliage to create an organic separator between the pods. The concrete-slab and columns that hold the pods were cleverly treated with an architectural mesh allowing for the foliage to naturally climb and thrive onto it accepting it as one with nature.
Bamboo is used as the main decorative element so that the structure blends into the natural landscape. Concrete and granite have been used for the columns supporting the pods and the main floor slab.
Stickman Tribe团队与景观顾问和来自印度的竹子专家JANS Bamboo Products相互合作，通过合理的规划尺寸绘制出用餐区的布局和空间，以形成开阔的视野。
Stickman Tribe team worked closely with the landscape consultant and JANS Bamboo Products--the bamboo specialists from India--to map out the setting out of the dining pods, hand-sketching the ideal distances, setbacks and openings to frame the views.
Terra被提议设置在地形的最高点，为餐厅提供了最佳的观赏点。这样设计有两个目的，首先，占据了一个独特的位置，让客人感受到酒店与自然融为一体的感觉，其次，为后面的住宿区域形成一个背景景观。Terra餐厅被巧妙地放置在所有后屋住宿的前面，以躲避客人的视线。Terra was proposed to be located at the highest point of the topography of the location to give the best views of the island. It was to serve two purposes. Firstly, be a unique location that provides guests the feel of being one with the incredible nature that surrounds the hotel, and secondly, provide a screen for the back of house accommodations. Terra was strategically placed in front of all back of house accommodation to hide it from the view of the guests.
The pods had to be raised to a certain height to get the best views. However, it was challenging getting the trees to mature and grow quick enough to achieve the desired design. After a few brainstorming sessions, Stickman proposed to create a bamboo forest for this concept. This simple but ideal solution presented many benefits.
Bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world and with the weather conditions in the Maldives, this presented an ideal fertile ground for the trees to thrive. The bamboo forests would help hide the structure or the columns, which was a series of singular columns that would carry the load of the gantry and each of the pods set in different heights and levels. Guests would seemingly feel that they're alone in the forest and not adjacent to other pods.
