Zapote Bar | Estudio Atemporal

Rosalin Citra Utami Kapa | Wednesday, 27 October 2021

Located within the Rosewood Mayakoba hotel complex, the renovation project of Zapote Bar was completed in 2021 in Playa del Carmen. The renovation of Zapote Bar aims to create an experience that is different from other hotel activities. The bar's interior design changes create an area where special and friendly moments take place that encourages interaction between diners.

Zapote Bar - Estudio Atemporal

The concept of the renovation of the Zapote Bar design emerged from the analysis of the traditional typology of the Yucatan peninsula. This process describes the evolution and mix of cultures and traditions inherent in family life in Mexico. This design shows the flow of culture and uses as well as customs that are very attached to the family life of the local community. By adopting warm and friendly local characteristics, the spaces in the bar can feel more familiar to local visitors. Not only that, but visitors from other regions can also feel the unique Mexican architectural style in this bar.

The rooms in the bar are divided into several sections with different atmospheres. The terrace, outdoor terrace, tree area, and main living area where two bars and an open kitchen break down the barriers between the service area and the visitor area. The division of this area also determines the compositional axis of the main room and the open kitchen area in a warm manner, but still separates visitors and service employees firmly.

The materials used in this Zapote bar renovation project are local and honest materials. Textures with evocations of the past merge into an atmosphere that evolves with the passing of the day, offering different moments and degrees of coexistence. The furniture, art kitchen, and service utilitarian objects included the participation of different collaborators such as La Metropolitana, Taller Nacional, BiYuu, Colectivo 1050 degrees, and various artisans. All of the details of the decorations, from the largest to the smallest piece, were selected during an extensive curation process to create a warm and real atmosphere that could tell a story in every detail.
