A fusion of Japanese and Mexican architectural techniques feature in this restaurant on Mexico’s Pacific Ocean, designed by TAX Architects for Hotel Escondido.

Called Kakurega Omakase, the restaurant is for Hotel Escondido near the lively Mexican port town of Puerto Escondido that is famous for surfing. Based in Mexico City, TAX Architects created the architecture of the hotel’s restaurant to feature a combination of Mexican and Japanese designs.

這家墨西哥太平洋酒店的餐廳融合了日本和墨西哥的建築技術,由TAX Architects為Escondido酒店設計。

這家名為Kakurega Omakase的餐廳位於埃斯孔迪多(Escondido)附近的熱鬧的墨西哥港口小鎮埃斯孔迪多港(Puerto Escondido),以沖浪聞名。 TAX Architects總部位於墨西哥城,創造了酒店餐廳的建築風格,融合了墨西哥和日本設計。

Kakurega means hideout or refuge in Japanese and is similar to the Spanish word escondido, after which the hotel is named, that means hidden.

In keeping with Hotel Escondido’s thatched-roof bungalows, which were designed by Mexico City architect Federico Rivera Río, TAX Architects also created the restaurant with a massive natural covering.


與墨西哥城建築師費德里科·里維拉·里奧(Federico RiveraRío)設計的埃斯孔迪多酒店的茅草屋頂平房保持一致,TAX Architects還創建了具有大量自然覆蓋物的餐廳。

Known as palapa, this structure is a traditional construction method in the Oaxacan region comprising layers of palm branches on a wood frame.

Other contemporary projects that feature palapa include Monte Uzulu boutique hotel and Tadao Ando’s Casa Wabi artist retreat, both of which are nearby.


其他具有帕拉帕(Palapa)特色的當代項目還包括附近的蒙特烏祖魯(Monte Uzulu)精品酒店和安藤忠雄(Tadao Ando)的Casa Wabi藝術家之家。

To add a Japanese touch to the design, TAX Architects opted for blackened wood beams using the traditional Japanese technique shou sugi ban.

Thick wooden beams scale two storeys to support the massive overhanging palapa roof, which is formed by thinner charred boards. Blackened wood planks also form the floor.

為了給設計增添日本氣息,TAX Architects選擇了採用日本傳統手工藝su sugi ban的發黑木樑。

厚厚的木樑可伸縮兩層,以支撐巨大的懸垂帕拉帕屋頂,該屋頂由較薄的燒焦木板形成。 發黑的木板也形成地板。

The restaurant is two levels and features bricks walls on the ground level made from reddish clay sourced and fired locally. The walls create private enclosures with concrete floors built lower into the ground and have plantings, a reflection pool, areas to sit and a covered space to prepare foods.

該餐廳分為兩層,地面上的磚牆由當地採購和燒製的紅色粘土製成。 牆壁形成了私人封閉空間,其混凝土地板建在地下,並具有植物,倒影池,可坐的區域以及用於準備食物的有蓋空間。

Two outdoor concrete staircases on opposite sides lead to the dining area of the restaurant on the first storey.


Lacking walls and windows, the open-air design allows the ocean breeze to cool the space naturally. Instead, the eating area is enclosed by thin metal railings that wrap around the perimeter and connect to the blackened pillars.

A long bar is in the middle of the dining space and is a where Japanese food is prepared in the omakase tradition, meaning the chef selects for the customers a series of dishes to be enjoyed.

缺少牆壁和窗戶,露天設計使海風可以自然冷卻空間。 取而代之的是,就餐區被環繞在外圍並連接至發黑柱子的薄金屬欄杆所包圍。


A series of wood bar stools with woven backs and seats complete the decor, alongside ceramic bowls and plates and woven light fixtures.

Kakurega Omakase is a collaboration between TAX Architects with local artist Bosco Sodi and photographer Luis Urrutia. The interior design was by Lucía Corredor and Ceci Tena, founders of Mexico City antique furniture store Década, and can accommodate 12 people.

In addition to this restaurant, Kalach has also designed a brick chimney at Casa Wabi artists retreat in the coastal region, which accompanies a pottery pavilion designed by Portuguese architect Álvaro Siza.
