The unique design of El Equipo Creativo‘s Restaurante Pakta finds its inspiration in a fusion of Japanese and Peruvian traditions. Pakta means union in the Quechua language, and this concept is reflected through the duality of the two main sections of the restaurant. The delicacy of the lines that enlace the ceiling and walls and the Latin American informed use of vibrant colour provides a direct link to traditional Peruvian craftsmanship in fabric-weaving, while the bar area at the front is a clear reference to the austerity of Japanese architectural principles. The linearity of the design creates movement and visual interest within an otherwise small space, and the kitchen is incorporated into the dining experience as a luminous box, where the chefs can seen through glass panels of various opacity.
