The Guadalajara premises, covering 395m² and with a seating capacity of more than 200 guests, have been designed by the Filipao Nunes architecture studio, and has won the “The International Hotel&Property Awards 2019” in the category “Restaurant Global 2019 Winner”.
The principal task of architect and interior designer Filipao Nunes was to start with Mexican traditions, having both cuisine and architecture reflect the age of Porfirio Diaz, to create a modern project characterised by a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere.
Walnut, brass laminates and tapestries, these are some of the materials selected to represent the vision of Porfirio’s in a modern key, using advanced construction techniques to showcase the history and philosophy of Mexican cooking.
The same expressive philosophy guided the decision to use Caesar ceramic tiles for the interior flooring. Two porcelain tile collections were chosen, Statuario Venato from the Anima collection (60x120cm), and Root, in the Nocciola tonality (20x120cm).
Anima expresses the essence of the most refined marble in a ceramic version which combines the refinement of the natural stone with the high performance of porcelain stoneware for outstanding strength and durability.
Oak, in its most rustic, warm version, is the inspiration for Root, featuring the detailed graphic markings characteristic of traditional craftsmanship.
