developed in collaboration between ghezzi novak and la fabrica, ‘la sombra’ is the third-prize winner of a competition held in peru that aims to recover and develop the fisherman’s beach in chorrillos, lima. the project is located in a coastal area of 20.000 square meters and aims to benefit the fishermen by recovering the beach, improving the pier, construction a new infrastructure for the market, and creating an innovative dining experience for the general public.

ghezzi novak and la fabrica define their proposal as a shadow, where actors converge and are part of the landscape. by building a canopy above the public plaza, the project strives to generate around this area, a down-to-earth experimentation of artisanal fishing processes. the architecture was thought in relation to its context, taking into consideration that it needs to endure over time by using low maintenance materials, in favor of economics and responsibility towards the city.
