Authentic Mexican

A project begins with a conception. An entire building design may begin with a desired experience the client wishes to evoke. It is the architect and designer’s job to interpret this idea.

Computer-rendered models can help transform a space plan into a three-dimensional concept. Here exterior and interior rendering used to communicate to the client. The end result evolves from these models.

AMG Inspired Design partnered with Ellis Architects to develop a design concept for a Mexican restaurant: authentic Mexican with an urban flair.
Stone columns, heavy timber beams and adobe construction are adapted from tradition. Open design layout between dining, bar, courtyard and kitchen gives sense of space and energy. Glass provides connection to outdoor spaces and street presence.

Prior to any schematic designs, inspiration can begin with a collage of imagery gather to convey this desired end result. Precedence boards communticate this feeling and can be useful in presenting a design concept ideas to the client.

In a study of Mexican architecture, a different ambiance is stimulated from each of these inspiration boards:

Inspired by Nature
Inspired by Color
Inspired by the City
