Founded in 1875, the Regatas club is one of the oldest rowing clubs in South America. After the reconstruction of one of the piers, a restaurant that echoes the first rowing building was commissioned to Barclay & Crousse. Amar de Lima restaurant is located at the end of the pier, with an independent platform linked to it through a short bridge. The project reinterprets in a contemporary way key features from the original building as its geometry, skylights, openness and materials as steel and white-painted wood to adapt it to a restaurant which offer unique and compelling sea and bay views of Lima. Large cantilevered roofs ensure protection from the sun, while pivoting floor-to-ceiling windows ensure 360o views and natural ventilation, reinforced by the presence of triangular shaped skylights, inspired from the colonial Limean skylights. The kitchen is surrounded by shelves, a wine cellar and blackboards advertising the day’s specials. Cooks enjoy views over the sea by a long window where their work can be seen by diners and passing fishermen from the artisanal port next to the rowing club.
