This Lima restaurant is a stunning example of how older architecture can be restored to maximize its natural surroundings. Located in the San Isidro district of the city, the Moreyra House Astrid y Gastón Restaurant is a stunning, lively space filled with plant life and beaming with natural light.

The whiteout interior is amplified by skylights that also serve to enrich the plants that line that ceiling. Designed by 51-1 arquitectos, the renovated eatery serves as the flagship restaurant of Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio.

The refreshed seventeenth century estate, now completed, is a restaurant as well as a culinary art center. A large portion of the property will be dedicated to culinary research, while it will also be able to host large-scale events.
