  • Black Pepper is a restaurant located in the city of Meknes, Morocco. The astonishing Moroccan sunlight, filters through a dense network of louvers revealing the double height space and its materials.

    A mezzanine space, part of the public area, overhangs the main space, and announces the kitchen, behind a set of portholes. Downstairs, bar and show kitchen are open on the space. Raw materials such as burned wood, brick, concrete, are the components of the envelope of the place.

    Leather, wood (cedar from a local forest), marble (black marble with white veins from a local quarry), are the components of the finishes of the furniture, bringing precision and refinement to the project. Green plants in huge terra cotta jars punctuate the space, bringing sweetness and freshness to it.
