"Hueso" restaurant is located in the lafayette design district of Guadalajara, Mexico. It was designed by Ignacio Cadena in collaboration with chef and restauranteur Alfonso Cadena.
Hueso means ‘bone’ in Spanish and the restaurant’s decor is wholly dedicated to the concept, with each of the elements embodying the shapes and textures of skeletal forms.
Mounted on the walls are 10,000 cast aluminium bones and in lieu of a sign at the entrance, an aluminium bone hangs by the door.
The architectural ‘bones’ of the building (brick work, plaster and pipes) are also partially exposed and painted white. Hueso’s exterior features handmade tiles decorated with folk patterns that resemble craft and stitching.
