Miraflores, Lima (2011-2013)
Peruvian chef Ivan Kisic requested that we design a place where he could perform the experiences of his creative universe. After a series of workshops where he showed us his culinary process, field trips, recipes and details collected along his career, our job consisted in creating a built alter-ego of Ivan’s gastronomic proposal: IK restaurant. An introspective succession of contained spaces, where an interior becomes the exterior of the following space, all made with essential materials positioned to exacerbate its properties and a constant manipulation of the spaces’ scale and time. A garden, a wooden fruitbox, a black box, and a curtained pod.
