The architectural program includes spaces such as a vestibule, lobby, open areas, private rooms, conference rooms, executive dining rooms, informal meeting rooms or casual collisions, one-to-one rooms, training areas, support areas, IDFs, technology rooms, digitalization rooms, cash register, among others.
Throughout the lobby, nemaworkshop used Polanco as a backdrop, developing a design saturated by colors, shapes and textures, paying homage to Mexico City’s rich history. A pyramid, with hidden messages only visible at night, greets newcomers in the lobby and intimate pockets with laser-cut screens and chairs with backings reminiscent of a mask conceal VIP guests.
Through it we access the main room, a big window lights up from the North, stoned walls illuminated indirectly by a mirror lamp allow the diners to really appreciate the space. The furniture, specifically designed for this place, defines it as timeless and elegant, the bone coloured leather in the chairs helps to keep the visual calm.
The main attraction of the project is the Kitchen, this open, flow space its confined by a counter made of Stone Blocks who had been posted on there places with a crane, it’s a perfect contrast mixed with the transparent glass bar on top of it, that how together coexist the traditional and contemporary materials.
The applications are intuitive and clean, they use a combination of rubber stamps with offset printing and the band that covers the books and magazines is later reused as a bookmark. We created a space that conveys the feeling of a sitting room – a relaxed and cozy atmosphere where the publications on display can be taken and read on the couch.
The goal of this project was to create a space that felt like a homey restaurant along the pier, so we decide to use materials that are commonly seen and accessible in local ports such as crates for exhibiting fish, wooden planks, ropes and sailcloth among others in a re interpretative way, achieving a modern yet casual style.
