PACO'S TACOS

Techne Architecture + Interior Design

8th Jun 2016

Where can you experience an explosion of colourful Mexican culture? Australia apparently! A recent arrival to Eastland, Paco’s Tacos is triumphantly channelling authentic bursts of colours in this taqueria designed by Melbourne-based Technē Architecture + Interior Design.

The restaurant may adopt a playful approach, but the design team have taken the brief seriously. Influences of the revered Mexican architect Luis Barragán are evident throughout the restaurant; individual height large timber and reo mesh arches divide and play with the scale of the vast floor plan.

Block shades of pink, blue and yellow have been used in each zone between the arches, referencing the vibrant, coloured facades commonly found in Mexican architecture.

Technē teamed up with landscape architects Ayus Bontanical for green space and planting, maximising the opportunity to create a courtyard-like ambience.

“It’s our mission to create sustainable spaces that will stand test of time, so we’ve used extremely durable materials while still making the space comfortable for patrons.” - Jonny Mitchell senior interior designer at Technē
