Tijuana, Baja California




2,800 SF



As Tijuana, Mexico transformed into a progressive culinary hot spot due to its proximity to Southern California and its influences from Baja-Med, we set out to design an environment that could blend the culinary art with architectural moments equal in taste, resulting in a unique experience.

This project is a casual and comfortable space for young professionals, entrepreneurs, and the well traveled to enjoy.

To reflect the duality of program – casual and sophisticated – we created a floor transition that merges hexagonal tiles with a wood floor, whose intersection creates a perceptual line which when followed takes you into the project's speakeasy.

The duality of the city, the food, and the space

allow us to merge comfort with progress.

The project's facade was created by using a digital algorithm to transform a photograph of a herd of Oryx into a vectored path which was then perforated onto a series of metal sheets which, in doing so, established the project's exterior as its own unique design language.

After nearly facing extinction, the Oryx, a hardy creature who almost rivals the camel in tenacity and suitability, is today reclaiming its place in the arid desert environment.
