Fix up an old street for 3000 dollars

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. El Knockout de las Tortillas!

    this is such a nice thing. omlette look really ace. i love the small budget – big outcome aspect. and especially love seeing this as we have just moved into a new shop/studio/house type arrangement (big plans ahead:) and as it is a) a second massive apartment but not much outdoors and b) right in the thick of a busy and long tradition of shop/industrious practices going on everywhere, i am scheming and pondering as to how to see this new environment. so it is great to see these kinds of rejuvenated spaces that also stay true to a the integrity of the original atmosphere.
    (ps – i recently got a book called family shops: i saw it on a great blog but can;t remember which…i think you guys might also really like it, and it suits this post somehow…)
