Tupai at Andina

We designed this private-event space to reflect Andina’s modern Peruvian cuisine. Referencing the stepped patterns found in Incan art and in the agricultural terraces of the contemporary Peruvian landscape, we developed a recurring zigzagging motif, which appears in a warmly back-lit cutout in the main dining area’s decorative wall; in the stepped form of a thick, reclaimed-wood display shelf mounted behind the bar; and in patterned shades that encircle large, locally made, pendant light fixtures.
