LA DESPENSA

BXH Arquitectura as Architects

Located on the west end of Mexico City, La Despensa Bosques is a space designed under two fundamental concepts: “We are aware that a successful business thrives not only on sales, but also in offering a shopping experience worth repeating”, and also “at the same time offering products that aren’t available in big supermarket chains”.


The challenge was precisely finding the middle point between the macro-tendency towards “green” (fair trade, organic, healthy, eco-friendly), and the quality and operation standards offered on an ordinary supermarket.


The concept of the project is born from the use of regular supermarket design typologies fitted into a 2,150ft2 plan, turning it into a mini supermarket, a unique concept in Mexico City.


The product offer is the same as in regular market chains, with fruits and vegetables, meat and groceries, bakery, wine, household and canned goods, among many others, available in their common version as well as their healthy option: gluten free, salt free and kosher certified.


Inside, a wall of fruits and vegetables fill the air with delicate and pleasant scents, which mix with colors, textures and warm lighting, generating a pleasurable and swift shopping experience.


The kosher certified products along with the wine and liquor section are located at the end of the aisle which leads to the two register lines, each one holding a generous impulse buying section and a tasting area for the clients to pick new products to take with them on their next visit.
