The restaurant is built at residential scale, on the site of a former house that had gone through multiple residential and commercial iterations over the years. This is the second and largest space that Studio Cadena has designed for Masa, the first, also in Bogotá, is a smaller cafe that opened in 2014.

The 7,500 squarefoot restaurant is organized as a grouping of distinct but interconnected volumes, each with a particular function. At one corner sits a cafe and bakery, which flows into central entrance area that is adjacent to a dining volume and separate retail space.
