The client for Hueso Restaurant – which translates as Bone Restaurant – was Cadena's brother, chef Alfonso Cadena.

Bone-white tiles patterned with a black linear design clad the exterior, while inside a array of animal carcasses decorates the walls.

Thousands of animal bones line the macabre interior of this restaurant in a refurbished 1940s building in Mexico, by design studio Cadena + Asociados.

Bare brick internal walls are washed in a patchy layer of white paint and covered from ceiling-to-floor with animal skulls, fragments of bone, anatomical drawings and white cooking utensils.

The morbid ornamentation is subdued by the white and grey colour palette used throughout.
