Mass Operations : Antilope Café

Located in the city of Montmerrey in Mexico, the café Antilope, directed by the architecture firm Mass Operations, is inspired by the world of Wes Anderson to offer the first physical space of the chain of the same name. A design way Grand Budapest Hotel !

The temple of coffee! The Antelope is a longitudinal volume on one level of 80 square meters, where dining room, counter and kitchen are linked. Influenced by the geometry of Wes Anderson's films, the Mass Operations team divides a single space into two opposing and distinct atmospheres. On one side is the bar section set in a pastel pink decor, punctuated with white marble panels, animal sculptures made of wire and plants, and equipped with marble tables and high chairs; and on the other, a more "cold" area with a hatched white wall of golden metallic lines, and white round tables, seats and green pine benches, where the dining area is located. The slats of floor and the false ceiling arranged at an angle complete this geometric table. At the back of the room, a large marble frame floating between translucent backlit cribs separates the customers from the barista.

This chapel roasted may attract the faithful!
