Mezcalería Maguey / Daniela Bucio Sistos // Taller de Arquitectura y Diseño
Textual content description supplied by the architects. Mezcalería Maguey is an intervention positioned inside a industrial plaza. The primary strategy was to attain an impact of dissociation for the person and to create an surroundings that’s utterly totally different from that of a industrial institution.
The respect for the mezcal and its artisanal elaboration was handed down by our purchasers, a household that’s devoted to mezcal and is headed by a grasp mezcal maker. The duty was at all times to make an area worthy of this distillate.
Understanding in regards to the elaboration of mezcal, the formal and inside proposal is rooted within the feeling of being below the bottom or buried, as they do with sure forms of mezcals. This area has earthy tones that had been achieved with polished cement and partition partitions. The location was an oblong place, with flat roofs, uncovered steel buildings, and an entrance positioned in a nook of the polygon.
We needed to vary the guiding axes of the positioning each horizontally and vertically, proposing a cross vault throughout the area and sectioning the place to have totally different areas and environments. The entry and façade is a gate with two sliding doorways within the heart already organized by the industrial plaza.
From the aisles of the plaza, one can barely understand the nice and cozy gentle of the mezcalería. When coming into the place, a vault of obvious partition wall surrounds the central area revealing the bar. With the counter bar, we needed to create a aircraft with cavities that appear like a hand-worked floor that reminds us of the method of digging up mezcal. Behind this counter bar hides the kitchen.
Creating this new format, the vault diagonally crosses the premises and two smaller-scale, extra intimate areas are generated on both facet of this central physique. These secondary areas home the number of regional mezcals. The intention of this challenge is to pursue an environment of shadows.
