Richi Vali fue un ejercicio divertido para presentar la joyería de un diseñador como piezas de arte, integrando algunos accesorios y ropa al concepto. El reto fue crear un espacio original y de mucha calidad en poco tiempo y con un presupuesto reducido.

Richi Vali


Richi Vali was a fun excersice to present a designer's jewelry as pieces of art, integrating some accessories and clothing into the concept. The challenge was to create an original and high quality space in a short period of time and with reduced budget.

Zama is a beach club and independent event garden. The pool area and the restaurant palapa operate regardless of any event. Comfort was achieved through high ceiling, bamboo and wood lattices, and cross ventilation, without the need for air conditioning.

Intervening a space in this iconic building in Mexico City was one of the greater and most challenging experiences of the studio. We intended to update the restaurant, to generate a culinary destination rather than a tourist attraction. Looking for Mexican materials and design to reinforce its location, cleaning any obstacles to emphasize the 360º unique views of the city.

R1101/ Piedra Sal

The main challenges for the renovation of this restaurant on a busy corner of Paseo de la Reforma were: a 2nd floor location, the entrance and integration of interior and exterior spaces. We designed a wooden box, suported by two concrete bearing walls, containing a new staircase, and a steel and wood lattice facade. Joining the two stories of the building. The space above opens up to the trees and to the sky, covered with a wooden pergola that spans thought the entire length of the space. We maintained a monochromatic palette with shades of gray and wood. Leaving the central bar as a focal element with a brass design. Everything was specially designed and manufactured for Piedra Sal, from the concrete floor, to the black clay lamps, furniture and flatware;  generating a fresh and cozy atmosphere, highlighting the quality of Mexican design and craftsmanship.

Intervening a space in this iconic building in Mexico City was one of the greater and most challenging experiences of the studio. The bar is the only space in the tower with full length windows, through lighting we intended to replicate the city lights and create an intimate atmosphere, reminiscent, through the furniture and materials, of  time of the tower construction.

Technology was the suggested theme for this intervention. For us, technology represents the possibility of reducing our carbon footprint, taking advantage of resources and raising awareness. In two days a 220 sqm restaurant was set up in a convention center, the restaurant opened for a three day event, we had 6 hours to dismantle it. The premise was to achieve a cozy and purposeful space without generating garbage. Recycled and borrowed materials were used, the wood panels ( built out of wasted wood floor) were donated to a low-income school and the rest was reused in other projects.

With reduced budget and 2 months working time, we created a garden that surrounds the roof of a building, generating a multifunctional space, a kitchen and a pergola, where the user feels isolated from the surrounding city.
