japanese restaurant tori -tori in mexico city due to its success is now moving to a bigger location in polanco, mexico city, where architect michel rojkind of rojkind arquitectos and industrial designer hector esrawe of esrawe studio have teamed up to design it.

the building’s organic façade and landscape were carefully designed to become an extension of the restaurant creating a strong relationship between the inside and the outside. each room has its own nature and shows a clear relationship with its function. the furniture was inspired and made for tori tori and developed with a direct orientation through each space. during more than eight months a complete collection of chairs and tables were created, for both exterior and interior use.

the façade as if mimicking the natural ivy surrounding the retaining walls, is made up of two self supporting layers of steel plates cut with a cnc machine and handcrafted to exact specifications.

the facade’s pattern responds to the inside openings, filtering light, shadows, and views that will constantly invade the interior spaces. an atmosphere enriched by the spectrum of subtle changes.

  • esta chido, lo malo es que polanco no tiene una linea. Todos los edificios son diferentes. en 30 anos cuando hayan pasado de moda, polanco se vera como un barrio viejo.
