Mexico-based architect and designer Ignacio Cadena and his firm, Cadena + Associates, built Hueso, a restaurant in Guadalajara's Lafayette design district, for his brother, chef Alfonso Cadena. It's aptly named, given that thousands of cast aluminum animal bones line the walls. The theme is echoed in the bone-white painted brick of the interior, as well as the gorgeously tiled exterior. While it sounds a bit morbid, the result is actually a wonderfully light, airy, awe-inspiring dining space. More images here and here, and interview with Ignacio Cadena here.
