Contemporary Restaurant Displaying Digital Design in Mexico City

Tori Tori cosmopolitan and contemporary restaurant in Mexico City is a great mix between its exterior that gives a sentiment of modern art installation and its rich in wood interior that leaves a warm and inviting impression. Rojkind Arquitectos, who designed this project, focused on translate complex geometries into very simple and understandable drawings that benefit from local manufacturing. Located in the Polanco district, Mexico City, the new bigger Japanese restaurant was once a residential house. Focusing on renovating the house, the architects produced an entirely different environment from the one that was before. They managed to create a strong relantionship between the outside and the inside, so the landscape and the building’s organic ivy-like façade were designed to be an extention of the restaurant.

This incredible 629 sqm building houses a range of open spaces, terraces, a sake bar and an own exclusive temple oriented at highly demanding sushi lovers. Each interior space has its own atmosphere emanating an intimate and subtle feel. Furnishings are specially made for Tori Tori restaurant with a direct orientation through each space.
