Tori Tori Restaurant


Boasting beautifully layered and patterned facades designed by Mexican architects Rojkind Arquitectos, the new Tori Tori Japanese restaurant in Mexico City is set to make a major impact when completed later this month.

In keeping with the growing trend for decorative architecture, Tori Tori's perforated exterior walls – which allow views both in and out of the restaurant – are so dynamic that they also serve to create an architectural-style advert for those passing by.

Designed to blend indoor and outdoor dining spaces, the patterned skin mimics the ivy covering on the outside terrace walls. Created from two layers of laser-cut steel panels, it also provides intriguing interplays of light and shadow that add extra depth to the space.
