The Madero Cafe, Guatemala City

Words by Marvin Maddix

 

The Madero Cafe, Designed by Taller KEN is an  open-air café, with no glass, to connect the project to the pedestrian walkways. The exterior consists only of custom operable folding shutters comprised of steel panels inter-woven with dowels. It ‘skins’ the existing commercial center’s facade to create a greater impression of a unified whole when seen from all 3 free sides.

The floor is a custom-made concrete tile with a ‘random’ colorful pattern that serves as an orienting guide for people to circulate around the service core of kitchen and bathrooms and explore to find unique surprises and moments to experience the project differently each visit.
