Walking into Taqueria Nacional transports you to a neighborhood taqueria in Monterrey or Mexico City. The long narrow building on the corner of T Street and 14th, is divided into three distinct rooms using design elements. The first “room” you walk into is an exterior courtyard with a large window opening the building up to the outside. Next is a living room with a mismatch of dining room tables and chairs and closest to the food counter is designed to be an interior courtyard. Design elements such as mailbox tray holders and trashcans pay homage to the buildings history as a post office. Everything about the building is inviting and homey, carefully and thoroughly designed by Kristina Crenshaw and the design & architecture team at the firm Streetsense.
