Winner: Sustainable interior of the year 2021. Lucas Muñoz has created the restaurant Mo de Movimiento almost entirely out of waste materials.
Mo de Movimiento is located in a former theatre and recording studio. The construction rubble from the renovation was upcycled and reused when building the restaurant.
The internal courtyard was made by removing the roof of the former recording studio while maintaining the existing surrounding walls. The interior walls are finished in rough plaster, as a safety hazard necessity rather than a decorative one.
Seating, tables, radiators and lights were also made from reclaimed upcycled components.
Judges comments: "The restaurant is very beautiful, upcycled but aesthetic. The interior is profound and whimsical. You can tell they had a lot of fun when designing this space. This interior is also honest, raw and fun. It does so many things and has an inventiveness to it. Creativity, fun, cheerfulness permeates through every detail. The use of recycled material sparks design innovation at every level."
