Textural skin design for Mexico City restaurant

Textural Mexico City design for restaurant by Rojkind Arquitectos & Esrawe Studio.

Utilizing a combination of a textural steel skin with rustic organic elements, Architect Michel Rojkind and Industrial Designer Hector Esrawe have collaborated together to create a unique interior and exterior space for a high end Japanese Restaurant in Mexico City.

Computer generated exterior elements, carved with CNC precision, and joined into a continuous external skin, with an alive transparency and undulation - yet contained by geometric architectural boundaries.

Interiors utilize highly textural surfaces, strong color contrasts, within an intriguing architectural space. With occasional glimpses of the exterior skin, the interior spaces provide a sense of a protected environment, self contained and insulated from the world outside.

Wooden flooring, walls, and ceiling surfaces - accented with careful intrusions of color, from a living green wall and well placed furniture items, contrasts nicely with the lively blue enveloping skin.
