“IN EVERYTHING I FEEL MEDITERRANEAN: MY WAY OF RELAXING, MY ORIGIN, ALL OF IT SHOULD BE FOUND IN THIS SEA WHICH I HAVE NEVER STOPPED LOVING” – LE CORBUSIER –
Mythos is born from offering an authentic Greek restaurant in Mexico City. With 128 m2 and seats for 80 guests, Mythos is located in one of the most pleasant walks of the Polanco borough.
The spatial conformation derives from the synthesis of conventional Greek spaces; for instance, the entry through the terrace evokes of a living room facing the sea. Its rustic architecture reminds a tavern and recovers the Mediterranean essence, described as a series of wood frames that spread out both on the front and the sides. The white walls and the light play a fundamental role in creating an atmosphere that goes along with the inner decoration of jars, plates, bottles and small trees.
The furnishing delivers a style of its own in six-, four- and two-post tables. A church pew provides a touch of antiquity that contrasts with the innovative design of the bar.
