The Mexico City government gave Omelette, an interior and industrial design group, the equivalent of US $3000 to renew Calle Regina, a rundown old street of little shops and restaurants in the city’s downtown. “The renovation of 23 popular restaurants and stores on Mexico City’s historic Regina Street. A budget of 3000 dollars. With little more than a few concepts and some buckets of paint, this interior design project aims to change new appreciation for the existing downtown. To create spaces attractive to both locals and foreigners. Finally, to add value and history to Regina street.” On only this tiny budget, Omelette managed to successfully together with the shop owners to clean up, refurbish and create new signage.
