ODAmx and Ruben Valdez Practice has created the restaurant concept of Xokol in Guadalajara, Mexico.

"Located in the neighbourhood of Santa Tere in Guadalajara, Xokol is a restaurant in which the act of eating becomes a collective ritual," said Ruben Valdez Practice.

The architecture of the space acts as a catalyst for the reinterpretation of the Mexican Mazahua people's culinary traditions.

Xokol is a communal dining experience in which the boundaries between diners, staff and food preparation are non-existent.

This project has been longlisted in the restaurant and bar interior category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
