Ébano Bistró & Bar by Arquitectura en Proceso

Ébano Bistró & Bar was designed by Mexican architectural group Arquitectura en Proceso. Their aim was to transform a building into a bistro. This project is situated in the north of Mexico, in a small town of Delicias, Chihuahua. Agriculture, livestock, and vast deserts are main characteristics of the region. The exterior transformation of the building was marked by the existing roof which was in very poor condition.

It was necessary to build a new one but so as to affect as minimally as possible the existing steel structure of the building. The new roof created a new image of the complex. The building is wrapped into a micro-perforated skin which allows a glimpse of the silhouette of the old building and creates a double skin to regulate the intense heat of the area.A functional route separates the bistro area from the very simple work space.
