Sushi Samba is a “culinary village” located at the top of the Heron Tower in London, UK and it hosts a Brazilian, Peruvian and Japanese restaurant designed by the CetraRuddy architectural practice in 2012.

The three levels are connected by a sculptural staircase made of orange glass and metal with a wall of street art decorating it. There is a terrace toward the west of the 38th floor and it has an orange tree sculpture wrapped be a bar and the lounge and dining try to create a unique experience of dining at height.

The dining room has three glass walls surrounding it and there are 297 lights suspended from the bamboo ceiling. The next level (39th) has a glass wall to communicate with the dining room and there are custom glass bead elements arching in it as a way of separating each space.

The 40th floor contains a Duck & Waffle restaurant inspired from the culinary traditions of Britain and it is designed with antique bronze pieces and weathered wood to pay homage to the architect Oscar Niemeyer.
