From the architect. SUSHI-KOI restaurant is located in the new area of bars and restaurants in the north of Aguascalientes City, Mexico. The design is focused on a contemporary and very attractive building. The concept of the restaurant is Japanese food combined with lounge music.

The skin of the main facade is an abstraction of a bamboo forest, the project was divided into three main areas: the terrace, common area and the mezzanine, each with a different appearance and scale.

The central circulation becomes the main design, goes through all areas, living through the route a number of spatial emotions. First access that passes over a water surface, then through the deck, later on the area of tables and last reached the stairs where there is a pond with koi fish.

Each space has a distinct appeal, ranging from the more than 250 Buddha heads in the VIP to the attractive lighting color painting the ceiling, but with a warm yellow light to all customers.


Koi is a small restaurant but has drawn attention for its careful design in every detail.
