Short description of the project This restaurant is the most exclusive of the area, located in the “zona viva” of Guatemala city, it was designed to provide sun and rain protection for the “patio” and fountain area of the restaurant. The openings at the sides were one of the main specifications in order to express and give life to the colonial architecture of the place. At the day you can see the shadows of the trees as a reflection in the interior of the membrane, and at night the illumination system have the same effect on it.
