Piedra Sal / R1101


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.
