Big Tent Restaurant: Nature-Inspired Dining & Economic Efficiency


With the improvement of living standards, glamping is sought after by people, and the catering industry is also fiercely competing in this field. Businesses are constantly innovating in their food and dining environment. In this highly competitive market, outdoor dining has gradually become one of the hot topics.

The big tent restaurant at glamping hotel is significantly different from the traditional food stall tent. First, they are more diverse in shape and offer more options, while the sturdy aluminum frame ensures safety and a long service life, even in harsh conditions. Most strikingly, these big tent restaurants can be set up in the embrace of nature, giving customers the experience of dining in nature. This unique experience of combining beauty with food makes big tent restaurant popular.

Ⅱ.Big Tent Restaurant's unique advantages: Natural interaction & economic efficiency

1/ Interact with Nature

Architecture and environment, indoor and outdoor, these two groups of spatial correlation treatment is different from the urban context of the spatial design strategy.

Big tent restaurant is unique in its ability to strengthen its connection with the natural environment, breaking down the clear boundaries between indoor and outdoor to provide diners with an unprecedented natural interactive experience. The space of big tent restaurant is sorted out through the design in the most necessary and non-essential intervention way, rather than the isolated interior transformation. This design has conceptually gone beyond the traditional restaurant, integrating indoor and outdoor to open up a new dining environment.

Enrich the view of the landscape and also spread the dining mood. The structure of the big tent restaurant breaks away from the industrial feel of a traditional building because of the contextual landscape and nature. While enjoying the food, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery around you, get close to the trees and flowers, and feel the change of seasons. This experience of being close to nature not only enriches the mood of the meal, but also strengthens the emotional connection between people and the environment. Architecture and environment no longer exist in isolation, but are interrelated and interactive elements.

2/ Low Cost High Efficiency

Compared with traditional construction restaurants, big tent restaurants have a shorter construction period and a lower cost. Whereas traditional restaurants usually take months or longer to build, big tent restaurants can be built in just a few weeks. This not only reduces costs during the construction process, but also enables operations to start faster, speeding up the return on investment cycle.

Due to the low construction costs and short construction periods, big tent restaurant founders can expand or modify at relatively low cost to adapt to changing market trends and customer tastes, thus better achieving financial freedom.

Ⅲ.The charm of a big tent restaurant

1/ The dance of Nature and food

The design philosophy of the big tent restaurant focuses on making nature one of the protagonists. Starting from the original coexistence relationship between architecture, environment and people, the ecology-oriented direction with very low degree of design intervention establishes a close spatial relationship between the three absolute protagonists of people, nature and food, the original sensory experience, and the flavor appreciation picture in time.

The food, as the third protagonist, also plays an important role in the charm of the big tent restaurant. The delicious dishes not only satisfy the taste buds, but also resonate with the environment and atmosphere to create a unique dining experience. The taste of the food is interwoven with the surrounding scenery and atmosphere, immersing people in a wonderful feast for the senses while dining.

2/ Nature and food dance

The design concept of the big tent restaurant is essentially about a return to the original. It offers an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and return to nature, allowing people to re-examine their relationship with nature. This is a space frozen in time, a picture of taste and feeling, the charm of the big tent restaurant lies in its unique design, allowing people to rediscover the most basic pleasures in life.

Compared with traditional catering buildings, big tent restaurant maximizes the window opening without affecting the structural function, so that people can feel the communication between the indoor and outdoor nature. With the help of window grilles, natural light is allowed to penetrate the interior. With these outdoor design techniques, customers can perceive changes in the outdoors at any time.

The space under the indoor natural scene emphasizes the division of the field and sense of the space, providing a comfortable experience close to the original nature in a high-density urban environment, hoping to convey the concept of symbiosis with nature.

The special structure of the big tent restaurant creates a quiet dining experience. The tent restaurant is different from the dull layout of ordinary commercial streets, which completely separates the indoor private space from the outdoor public space with a closed curtain wall, but extends the indoor to the outdoor, and the outdoor landscape is integrated with the indoor. At the same time, the relatively private and quiet form has a quiet place in the downtown area, forming a city corner with "depth".

In the process of walking on the street, we want people to occasionally see the slight warm light, occasionally smell the aroma of food, and feel the space quadrant of people and places, which is the human fireworks in the bustling city.
