Cafe creates tropical oasis in Guatemala City

Monday, May 8, 2017

Taller Ken, a New York and Guatemala-based architecture practice known for its playful take on design, brought a tropical haven right into the middle of Guatemala City. Madero Cafe is quirky and energetic, with plenty of colors and plants to create an unexpected oasis near a busy highway.

Inspired by a greenhouse, the open-air space has sawtooth skylights to light up the interior, which is full of patterns, materials, and textures sourced locally.
