Our proposal was based on an essential element in Mexican cuisine, the comal, an iron griddle where tortillas are made on and on which most dishes are cooked and heated.
It pares the idea of a traditional Mexican market stand down to its minimum expression, holding on to the basic elements and endowing it with a modern design without sacrificing its essence.
The griddle is located in the centre of the premises, showcasing it and the cook preparing the dishes. The bar encircles the premises, so guests can eat while watching how each dish is made.
10×10 gloss white tiles modulated in panels with natural iron frames on the walls were used. These materials were chosen to highlight the graphic design that accompanies the premises.
