The project is located on the new T zone in Bogota, . The program is divided in two zone: snacks, bar and VIP on the 2nd floor, dining and kitchen on the first floor.

The project looks to enhace the relation with street level, by overlooking pedestrians from a big stair on the entrance, to sit and watch.

Through this stair you arrive to the second floor, and after passing through the terrace you enter the bar area. From there, you go down one level onto a more protected and intimate space, on which is the main dining area which opens to an inner patio.

was used relating to traditional inca works, contrasting with red glass.

    I apologize for being slightly negative, but architects should never attempt signage design for their own buildings.

    It´s awesome in Colombia that new architects move the typical construction type to a new level.. Even if this is not the best architecture. Is a big step for the culture

    Buongiorno sig. Gilberto, forse ho sbagliato mail ma starei cercando gilberto l’amico di igles, se non è Lei le chiedo scusa!
    Buona giornata, alessia


    Correction: Nazca is not located in Bogota’s T zone as the article asserts. If anything, it’s NEAR the G zone in the Rosales district.
