Tori-Tori被公认为是墨西哥城最好的日本餐厅,向来生意兴隆,宾客盈门,如今这家餐厅搬到了一处更加宽敞的场地,仍然位于波兰科。新餐厅由Rojkind Arquitectos和Esrawe Studio两家建筑事务所联手打造。

在波兰科的住宅区,各区域变化都很大,住宅楼不是被改造成了办公楼,就是餐厅。有时候改变总是在潜移默化地发生,只有些微迹象表明这里开发了一个新的空间,内部设计与以前截然不同,而外观却维持原状。Rojkind与Esrawe均意识到了这一点,他们希望赋予新项目足够的影响力,因而将空间从内到外彻底改头换面。

设计充分利用了场地条件,将重点放在翻修上,剥除住宅内部装饰,去掉所有熟悉的元素,重新创造一种截然不同的环境。

尽管客户要求设计成日式风格,但却不想生搬硬套,他们希望餐厅能拥有独特的个人风格,不但有现代特色,也不乏国际化风范。在设计中通过各种体验提升原有的空间条件,创造全新的开放空间、露台、清酒吧,并专门为挑剔的寿司爱好者提供独家寿司殿堂。

人们一看到新餐厅的门面就会产生一种非常亲切而又微妙的感觉,一旦进入室内,你就会发现自己处于一个露台上,可以在天然植物的环绕之中享用美酒佳肴。建筑物的有机立面和景观无不精心设计,成为餐厅的延伸,从而在餐厅内外之间建立起一种牢固的联系。

室内延续了室外那种微妙的差异。每个房间都有自己的特色,能明确显示出其主要功能。家具的设计也受到了Tori Tori餐厅室内格局的启发,完全为这里量身打造,在每处空间都设计了专门适合这里方位的家具。8个多月过去了,室内外使用的全套桌椅终于设计制造完毕。

ESRAWE Studio建筑事务所的I.D. Héctor Esrawe介绍说:“在该项目中,我们力图为使用者将各个不同的环境联系在一起,让他们能够选择自己最喜欢的氛围。每个空间的家具都有别具一格的材料、安装及特色,让这里的常客能随意选择在自己喜欢的空间就坐。”

建筑的立面看上去如同从地面冒出,然后向上攀爬直至布满整个建筑外表皮,仿佛在模仿天然常春藤环绕挡土墙生长的态势。其实立面是由两层独立钢板制成的,先用数控机床切割,再靠手工制作成精确的规格。

rojkind arquitectos建筑事务所的Michel Rojkind介绍说:“在rojkind arquitectos事务所,我们对于以数字设计的方式做实验和建造建筑要求非常严格。正因如此,我们格外关注如何将复杂的几何形式转变为极其简单易懂的图纸,便于本地制造商施工,譬如这次就是在墨西哥城加工的构件。”

立面的图案与内部开口相互呼应,不但将光影打在室内墙面上,还不妨碍从外界看到内部的情形。微妙的光影变化丰富了空间的氛围。

Considered one of the best Japanese restaurants in Mexico City and due to its remarkable success, Tori-Tori has now moved to a bigger location in the same area of Polanco, Mexico City, where Rojkind Arquitectos and Esrawe Studio teamed up to make it happen.

At the residential area in Polanco that has seen changes in its zoning, houses have been transformed to office spaces or restaurants. Sometimes things happen so unnoticeably, that just a small sign appears where a new space has been developed with a completely different program inside, while preserving its exterior. Aware of this, Rojkind and Esrawe wanted to give enough strength to the new program that they proposed to transform the space inside out.

Taking advantage of the plot’s conditions, the main focus was placed on renovating the house, stripping the residential interior and removing all familiar features to produce an entirely different environment.

Although the client’s requirements were oriented towards a Japanese interpretation, it was not literal, he wanted the place to have its own personal expression, contemporary and cosmopolitan, by enhancing its existing spatial conditions through different experiences, the new range of open spaces, its terraces, its sake bar and its own exclusive temple oriented at highly demanding sushi lovers.

Maintaining a very intimate and subtle feel towards the first encounter with the exterior, once you enter you’ll find yourself in a terrace, where eating and drinking are embraced by natural vegetation. The building’s organic façade and landscape were carefully designed to become an extension of the restaurant creating a strong relationship between the inside and the outside.

The interior receives and follows the exterior with subtle contrasts. Each room has its own nature and shows a clear relationship with its function. The furniture was inspired and made for Tori Tori and developed with a direct orientation through each space. During more than eight months a complete collection of chairs and tables where created, for both exterior and interior use.

‘We seek in the project a chance for the users to link with the different ambiances and choose their favorites. Each space’s materials, setup and characteristics towards the furniture generate a wide spectrum of options and sensations for its assiduous clients.’ I.D. Héctor Esrawe, ESRAWE Studio

The façade, which seems to emerge from the ground climbing up through the building, as if mimicking the natural ivy surrounding the retaining walls, is made up of two self-supporting layers of steel plates cut with a CNC machine and handcrafted to exact specifications.

‘At rojkind arquitectos we are very rigorous about experimenting with digital design as well as getting things built. That’s why we have specially focused on how to translate complex geometries into very simple and understandable drawings that benefit from local manufacturing, as is the case of working in Mexico City.’Michel Rojkind, rojkind arquitectos

The façade’s pattern responds to the inside openings, filtering light, shadows, and views that will constantly invade the interior spaces. An atmosphere enriched by the spectrum of subtle changes.
