Interior of new Kokoriko Restaurant in Miami

SOW Design Studio’s latest project truly beautifies the relationship between sustainable architecture and eco-conscious culinary practice. Richard Sandoval’s new Kokoriko rotisserie in Miami was designed almost completely out of old reclaimed barn wood, and tree trunks. Plant fiber lamps made of fique plants were brought from Barichara along with the use of natural cement floors and brick walls to enhance the rustic approach. The restaurant consists of free range, all natural chicken with Colombian recipes, from which SOW design took a lot of inspiration. “We tried to be as responsible as we possibly could keeping in mind the restaurants language and Colombian culture,” says architect Mauricio Villa. “It was a project that we really enjoyed making and that we hope will inspire this eco conscious initiative and prove that green design is true design.”
