50 Friends Restaurant, Mexico
50 Friends Restaurant in Mexico City has just hit this East London design studio’s radar! This stunning space seems to get very little (to no) natural light , a problem which Cherem Architects have solved with the introduction of a variety of illuminants, including cool industrial pipes that creep across the stone like walls and LEDs across the ceiling.
Cherem’s Architects have chosen a warm pallet of natural materials. Wood features throughout the chosen furniture, bar and flooring. The vertical and diagonal pattern of the brickwork adds a wonderful feature on the walls, continuing to the bar and ceiling.
We love the plants hanging from the ceiling, this adds to the feeling of extending the outside, inside. The combination of the cascading plants and the textured brickwork create a slight sense of ‘ruins’. (Images from Retail Design Blog)
