This project consisted of converting an original row house structure, nestled in the Southside district of downtown Pittsburgh, into a Mexican restaurant. The client’s vision was to merge the history of Pittsburgh steel production with Mexican culture. Metal, brick, and concrete wall finishes serve as a muted textured backdrop to colorful Mexican references and steel smelting pot graphics. Architectural details such as steel beams, chain curtains, brick pillars, and a custom table base constructed from miscellaneous metal pieces promote an industrial-inspired design. Strategically placed large custom pendants and an accent wall of dark green Shou Sugi Ban wood dominate the unique dining room.
