argentinan firm gonzalez moix arquitectura have recently finished the ‘pecados capitales restaurant’ in lima, peru, on a site flanked
by two tall concrete walls, with angled grooves to replicate the style of the temple of ollantaytambo, with vines slowly overtaking the surface.
thick concrete beams stretch the interstitial space, crossing through each other in an almost haphazard fashion. a glass box cased in
corten vertical panels sits on the large girders to provide a more private space to dine. directly below, tables are enveloped in transparent
glass walls for an acclimated seating area, with exterior corridors on either side. an open-air courtyard marked by the soft wooden
planks covering the floor is located in the middle, between the rear volume housing the kitchen, bar and service functions, and the two
enclosed seating volumes.
