The Market restaurant is precisely located in a difficult triangular site in the middle of the garage shop and cluster adobe housing in Lima’s tradition district of Miraflores.  It was realized by Jaime Ortiz de Zevallos and the concept aimed to create two separate spaces that respond to the program requirements, the context and the relation between public and private space. It occupies a former auto repair garage, wisely transformed by architect Jaime Ortiz de Zevallos into a comfortable and attractive locale of high open […]

The intention was to make spaces communicate to each other by using different, specific colors for every floor as if the hue would mark of the territory. The final result proves it heavily: there has always been a place for color inside the house! Even today, when we are used with open-plan homes, where kitchens, living rooms, and dining rooms are often one large space, color is used to help define interiors. The trick, of course, […]
