When Nestlé’s Chocolate factory in Mexico City (located in Paseo Tollocan near Toluca) was in need of an inner pathway for visitors to witness the production of chocolates it was decided that the first chocolate museum in Mexico should have a 300 meter long facade along the motorway as the new image of the factory.

This first phase accommodates the main entrance and the auditorium so that children have a pleasant experience and start the voyage into the chocolate factory as soon as they enter this playful space.

The reception area serve as a preparation for the Nestle experience, the store or museum shop, and the passage to the tunnel inside the old existing factory.
An architectural experience, from the surprises, the twists and folds, and the forms and spaces they contain.
