From @graciastudio, a Culinary Art School located in Tijuana, Mexico. "At a quick glance, any stranger would say anything but a professional cooking school is housed inside these two volumes, which function as the main characters, and where materials like exposed concrete, steel, garapa wood, glass and metal structure are combined." Agreed.

"It is located with not very much in its surroundings, which is why the two main volumes face each other, creating a transition space: the grand plaza."

The greater volume contains the administrative offices, classrooms, library, and the wine cellar.

"On the second main volume, the cooking stations, with absolute transparency between it and the plaza, as well as with the other workshops. "We are always in-between, inside and outside simultaneously", says Inés Moisset; a third volume is involved, which accommodates the cafeteria and a small auditorium, where the alumni is able to observe their professors' work."
