전체적으로 나무 디테일과 기하학적 모양을 갖춘 현대적인 멕시코 레스토랑인 ATX Cocina는 오스틴 다운타운 주거 단지에 위치해 있으며 바닥에서 천장까지 내어져 있는 큰 창문을 특징으로 한다. 두 개의 작은 애나멜 강철 온실과, 친밀감 조성을 위한 가구, 그리고 따뜻한 공간의 분위기를 조성하는데 설계의 중점을 두었다. 아치형 천장은 소나무로 뒤덮여 있고, 기하학적 판넬로 만든 목각 무늬를 특성으로 한다.
Local firm Michael Hsu Office of Architecture designed the interiors for the modern Mexican restaurant with wood detailing and geometric shapes throughout, to enhance the pre-built space.
"The project was given a glass facade that could not be changed, so we focused our attention on the ceilings, two small enamel steel interior greenhouses and furnishings to create intimacy, layers of space and warmth," said Hsu.
The arched ceiling is covered in light-toned hemlock and pine to add character to the restaurant. A rifled wood pattern made of geometric paneling also features on a portion of the ceiling.
Another focal point of the space is a large built-in glass wall whose curved top follows the ceiling. This glazed divide runs along the cross section of the space, breaking up the large dining room and creating a more private eating area just beyond.
Tabletops and floors are a darker-hued pecan, while copper wire mesh and hot-rolled carbon steel provide accents elsewhere.
The layout comprises an open-plan kitchen with high tables and stools, with a set of communal tables and cushioned seating nearby. A built-in bench runs across the glazed wall, accompanied by a series of smaller tables.
ther areas of the restaurant include a wine counter and crudo area, along with an outdoor dining section that is shaded by large oak trees.
Taupe- and cream-coloured upholstery covers the benches, with a vibrant striped fabric used on the backs. Closer to the kitchen, darker tones of black, grey, and green can be found.
