Colca captures the vibrancy of Peru with hints of patterns, textures and colors in a renovated urban block in Shanghai’s Former French Concession.
The layout is based around an open-air dining terrace, which serves as the heart of the project. A mosaic water feature wall creates a tranquil backdrop for the seating area. The Latin-inspired bar transitions into the terrace, opposite of a private dining room.
Reclaimed wooden doors and sliding screens provide flexibility in the main dining room, which can be closed for private events or open to create a lively dining room. The high ceiling and exposed beams were maintained through an asymmteric blue stucco wall, which conceals the MEP equipment .
An illuminated feature wall, inspired by the topography of Colca Canyon, creates the ambiance in the main room, while connecting back to Peruvian origins.
