SHOP GITANO, TULUM BEACH

KM 7.5 boca paila road, tulum, quintana roo, mexico

SHOP GITANO IS OUR FIRST CONCEPT STORE LOCATED DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF GITANO TULUM.  

IT FOLLOWS THE SAME LANGUAGE OF THE GITANO STREAMLINED-MODERN ARCHITECTURE WITH LOCAL HARDWOOD FOR THE MAIN STRUCTURE AND POLISHED CONCRETE FLOORS JUXTAPOSED AGAINST THE WHIMSICAL JUNGLE AS A BACKDROP.  

CLEAN WOODEN SLATS ENCLOSE THE SPACE BUT ALSO KEEP IT VERY OPEN, DESIGNED TO GIVE A NATURAL LIGHT TO THE STORE AND ALSO A TEXTURE WITH A BEAUTIFUL FOUR FEET OVERHANG ABOVE A WELCOMING AND WARM PORCH.  

WE ARE INSPIRED BY 1960’S MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE LIKE THAT OF RICHARD NEUTRA MIXED WITH THE DESIGN ETHOS OF WABI SABI THAT THE PERFECTION IS IN THE IMPERFECTION.  WE USE A LOT OF NATURAL MATERIALS AND IF SOMETHING IS NATURALLY OFF WE LEAVE IT THAT WAY, LIKE THE UNEVEN EDGES OF THE STORE ROOF.  

shop gitano is a natural extension of gitano tulum, mezcal bar & kitchen.  both are integrated flowing from one to the other.  

shopping, dinner & dancing.
