Deseo Coffee ShackMy client has a Mexican-inspired coffee shop in Arizona. She requested a modern outdoor patio with Mexican inspired accents.
Terracotta tile or Saltillo tile is a widely used material in outdoor settings in Mexico. I created windows on the exterior wall using breeze blocks made from terracotta to add interest against the fresh white walls. Bright flamingo-pink tones were used on the fireplace and accent walls to bring the traditional Mexican colors into the outdoor space. Finally, black and white tiles were added to create a modern aesthetic.
