gonzalez moix arquitectura: pescados capitales restaurant

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.

  • Excellent and very current for big cities, full of cars.
    Smart diversity of environments and climates.
    Surely an irrefutable invitation to the sin of gluttony.
    Congratulations to Gonzales Moix Architecture and his team.

  • UN RESTAURANTE LINDISIMO.
    UN DIBUJO ORDENANDO Y LOGICO
    QUE TIENE SOPRENDENTES VISTAS DIAGONALES
    SUGERIDAS POR UNAS VIGAS EXPRESIVAS EN CONCRETO ARMADO.
    GRANDES ESPACIOS EXTERIORES (PATIOS) QUE APROVECHAN
    DEL CLIMA DE LIMA, DONDE NUNCA LLUEVE.
