Rio Grande is a tex-mex restaurant located in Mérida, Venezuela.
For the interior design, handmade cement tiles where used as decoration, while pinewood is mainly used to create the seatings and the tables. The chairs were ordered from a local artisan, making a reinterpretation of the same chair that farm workers use to milk cows.
Graphic design and the signage system was also used as decoration, trying to establish a direct dialogue between architecture and the brand identity.
